Somalia asks Saudi coalition to investigate refugee boat attackBy Abdi Sheikh MOGADISHU (Reuters) – The Somali government condemned a helicopter attack on a boatload of Somali refugees off the coast of Yemen and called on the Saudi-led coalition fighting in the country to investigate, officials said on Saturday. At least 40 Somali refugees were killed when a helicopter attacked the boat they were traveling in late on Thursday, the United Nations refugee agency said. “The prime minister condemns the unfair killing of the Somalis who were sailing on the shores of Yemen … the victims were innocent, unarmed and were mostly women and children,” Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire’s office said in a statement.
