Saudi airstrikes 'kill scores' at Yemeni wedding

Yemenis check the damage in a power station in the aftermath of an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition in the Yemeni capital Sana'a

Medics, and residents of Bani Qais where the wedding was taking place, told news agencies that 20 people attending the celebration were killed and at least 40 injured, while Doctors Without Borders put those injured at 45.

Yemen has been embroiled in a conflict between the Saudi-backed government and the Iran-backed Houthis since late 2014.

The massacre at a wedding in Houthi-controlled Hajjah province took place just weeks after Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) visited the USA, posing for photos with wealthy business leaders and meeting with Trump at the White House.

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.

Al-Masirah, the Houthi-controlled TV station, said on its Twitter account that 33 people had been killed and 55 wounded.

The Saudi-led coalition's spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the incident.

Yemen's Houthi rebels state their behaving head of condition was murdered in an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition.

Yemen has been since March 25, 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

On October 7, 2015, another air raid killed 43 people at a wedding in Sanaban village in the Dhammar governorate in Yemen.
