Saudi-led air strikes kill at least 20 at Yemen wedding

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif

Weeks after President Donald Trump thanked Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince for his country's use of USA military power, the US -backed coalition bombed a wedding party in Yemen, killing at least 20 civilians including the bride.

The dead were mostly women and children - including the bride - who were gathered in one of the tents set up for the wedding party in the district of Bani Qayis, according to Khaled al-Nadhri, the top health official in the northern province of Hajja.

A local official told AFP that at least 23 civilians, including women and children, were killed and 36 others wounded in the attack.

The Saudi-led coalition is yet to comment on the reports.

Saudi Arabia has since March 2015 led a coalition of Arab states fighting to roll back the Huthis in Yemen and restore its neighbour's internationally recognised government to power.

A wedding ceremony in Yemen was targeted by Saudi airstrikes as the kingdom continues with its relentless war on the impoverished country.

The Yemen war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than 2 million and driven the country to the verge of starvation, according to the United Nations.
