A Saudi-led coalition airstrike has killed the judge who prosecuted Saudi-backed and now-exiled Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi, CNN reports.

The airstrike hit the home of Yemeni Judge Yahya Rubaid, killing him, as well as his wife, son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. Five other family members and two guards suffered injuries.

“We do not target homes,” Saudi coalition spokesman Brig. Gen. Ahmed Asseri told CNN, denying the airstrike targeted Rubaid’s home.
