Backed Coalition Bombs Wedding Party in Yemen, Killing Dozens

Residents and medics told Reuters that 20 people attending the celebration were killed and at least 30 injured.

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

Qassemi further called on the United Nations and the countries that can play a role in the resolution of Yemeni crisis to increase their efforts to immediately stop the attacks and to take measures to protect civilians, especially women and children.

The double air strike on the crowded party venue had left a number of dead bodies buried under rubble, the official said on condition of anonymity.

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

The European Parliament has been Zuckerberg's question about the data breach
Earlier this month, Zuckerberg was made to speak to a congressional panel about his company's data collection and censorship practices.

Many women and children among those killed in a wedding tent in Hajjah's Bani Qays district, medical official says.

This crime comes days after the threat of the coalition spokesman of the US-Saudi aggression, Turki al-Maliki, to launch more brutal strikes against the Yemeni people.

Saleh al-Samad was probably the most senior Houthi official to be killed by the coalition because it intervened in Yemen's civil struggle in 2015 to try to push again the Houthis after they drove the internationally-recognised authorities into exile in Riyadh. In October 2016, 140 mourners were killed during an air strike on a house in Sanaa.

Almost 10,000 people have since been killed in the conflict, in what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
