By Mohammed Ghobari SANAA (Reuters) - Warplanes from the United Arab Emirates struck Houthi targets across Yemen, state news agency WAM said on Saturday, a day after 60 soldiers from a Saudi-led coalition, mostly Emiratis, were killed in an attack on their base in central Yemen. Apart from 45 Emiratis and five Bahrainis, Saudi state-run Al Ekhbariya TV reported on Saturday that 10 Saudi soldiers were also killed in the attack in Marib on Friday, quoting Brigadier-General Ahmed al-Asiri, the spokesman of the coalition. WAM said the UAE air force struck a mine-making plant in the Houthi-dominated Saada province in northern Yemen, as well as military camps and weapon stores in the central Ibb province and in the capital Sanaa, causing "heavy damage".

This raises death toll among the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis to 60. The United Arab Emirates said 45 of its soldiers were killed, and five Bahraini soldiers were also killed. Al Arabiya TV reported the same number of Saudi soldiers killed. (Reporting by Reem Shamseddine; Editing by Alison Williams)

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton continued to reign supreme in one-lap speed on Saturday when he secured his 11th pole position in 12 races for Mercedes by topping qualifying for Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix. The 30-year-old Briton powered around the high-speed Autodromo Nazional in warm sunshine to clock a best lap of one minute and 23.383 seconds and finish three-tenths clear of a resurgent Kimi Raikkonen, who was cheered to the flag in his Ferrari. The Finn, inspired by the tifosi packed into the main grandstand opposite the Ferrari pits, produced a flying late effort to beat his team-mate Sebastian Vettel, who wound up third.

By Krisztina Than and Karin Strohecker HEGYESHALOM, Hungary/VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria and Germany threw open their borders to thousands of exhausted migrants on Saturday, bussed to the Hungarian border by a right-wing government that had tried to stop them but was overwhelmed by the sheer numbers reaching Europe’s frontiers. Left to walk the last yards into Austria, rain-soaked migrants, many of them refugees from Syria's civil war, were whisked by train and shuttle bus to Vienna, where many said they were resolved to continue on to Germany. German police later said the first 450 of up to 10,000 migrants expected on Saturday had arrived on a special train in Munich from Austria.
By Louis Charbonneau and Tom Miles UNITED NATIONS/GENEVA (Reuters) - Martin Kobler, a German United Nations official currently overseeing the mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is the top candidate to take over as head of the world body's mission to Libya, U.N. diplomats said. If U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon decides to appoint Kobler to head the mission in conflict-torn Libya, he would replace Bernardino Leon, who the diplomats said was expected to step down soon and may have political ambitions in his home country of Spain. Four years after the ousting of late leader Muammar Gaddafi, militant groups allied to each of two rival administrations have brought the country's oil-dependent economy to its knees, and most of Libya is lawless and run by armed groups.
