Saudi Arabia says leading Houthi rebels killed i
Lahoud, 38, was in charge of the ICRC's detainees program in Yemen. An investigation is underway to determine who killed him. Stillart said Lahoud gave his life helping the people of Yemen.
Almost 10,000 people have been killed since the Saudi-led alliance joined the Yemen conflict, triggering what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
Note that the attack happened when there was a public funeral of the slain commander in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.
Al-Samad, who held the post of president in the Houthi-backed political body, was the most senior official to be killed by the Western-backed alliance, which had offered a $20-million USA reward for any information that led to Samad's capture.
Top Houthi officials including al-Samad's successor Mahdi al-Mashat, a former Houthi fighter, attended the funeral which was held in al-Sabeen square.
Houthi leader Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi held the USA and Saudi Arabia responsible for Samad's killing, saying, "This crime won't go unanswered".
Saudi Arabia formed its military coalition in 2015 to battle the Houthi rebels in its southern neighbor and restore the internationally recognized Yemeni government to power.
Saudi Arabia's civil defense directorate says one person has been killed by "shrapnel" from a ballistic missile attack by Yemen's Shiite rebels known as Houthis.

Saudi Arabia today has intercepted four ballistic missiles fired by militants from Yemen.
Meanwhile, the rebel-run Al-Masirah TV says Saturday's missiles hit their targets with "high accuracy".
The missiles were headed towards the city of Jizan in southern Saudi Arabia, according to a coalition statement.
On Saturday, April 28, reports The Times of Israel. The Shiite rebels generally known as Houthis didn't instantly acknowledge the strike.
Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television said the overnight strike had targeted the interior ministry in Sanaa, which is controlled by the rebels.
Al-Masirah, a Houthi-run satellite news channel, acknowledged that Houthi leaders met Friday to discuss Saturday's funeral of Saleh al-Samad, a Houthi political leader killed over a week ago in a Saudi airstrike on the coastal city of Hodeida.
