World News: Saudi-led coalition strikes back, following Yemeni rebels' attack on Monday Updated: 2022-01-18 09:53:48 KST

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now'.

A Saudi-led coalition has launched air strikes targeting Yemen's capital of Sanna.
According to Riyadh, the air raid was a response to an attack by Houthi rebels near Abu Dhabi airport Monday, which killed three people and left six other injured.
A drone attack was behind the deadly scenes, which Iran-aligned Houthis claimed responsibility for.

“With the help of God Almighty, the armed forces carried out a qualitative and successful military operation, which targeted the airports of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the oil refinery in Abu Dhabi, and a number of important and sensitive Emirati sites and facilities.

The group says the attack involved five ballistic missiles and several drones.
The UAE's foreign ministry in a statement condemned the attacks, warning that the actions will "not go unpunished".

Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic's dream of a record 21st Grand Slam title has been put on hold, as he was deported from Australia on Sunday, ahead of the Australian Open, after losing a court case to have the cancellation of his visa overturned.
According to the French Sports Ministry on Monday, there would be no exemptions from a new vaccine pass law approved on Sunday, which requires people to have vaccine certificates to enter public places, such as restaurants, cafes and cinemas.
The ministry added that the latest measure will apply to everyone, whether a spectator or a professional athlete.
The next 'non-Grand Slam' tournament on Djokovic's calendar is likely to be the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships slated for February 21 to the 26th.
The event organizers say all players would need to provide negative PCR tests before being allowed into the UAE, indicating a possible green light for Djokovic.

Major Canadian cities saw massive snow storms hit their regions, dumping several centimeters of snow on Monday.

The snow storm has caused more than a third of flights to be canceled at Toronto Pearson airport, Canada's busiest.
With Ottawa also seeing more than 40 centimeters of snow, snow removal crews say it'll take days before roads are fully cleared.
