Airstrike on Wedding Kills More Than 20 in Yemen

Among the wounded were at least 13 children, some of whom arrived to hospital in critical condition.

More than 50 people were killed after two airstrikes by Saudi-led coalition aircraft targeted a wedding party in Hajja Province in Yemen on Sunday evening, local sources told al-Araby al-Jadeed.

Samad was second on the coalition's most needed checklist of Houthi leaders, after the group's chief Abdel-Malek al-Houthi.

It was not the first deadly strike on a wedding during Yemen's conflict, which has killed almost 10,000 people since the coalition intervened in March 2015 to battle the Iran-backed Huthis and restore Yemen's internationally recognised government to power.
