Saudi Air-force Crashes Yemeni Wedding – 131 Dead

131 dead in alleged Saudi airstrike on Yemen wedding

The death toll from an alleged air strike on a Yemeni wedding soared Tuesday to 131, including women and children, as the Saudi-led coalition denied it was behind the incident.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon condemned Monday’s reported bombardment, saying intentional attacks on civilians were considered a “serious violation of international humanitarian law”.

Residents said the Arab coalition, which launched an air war on the Huthi Shiite rebels in late March, was behind the attack on the wedding in Wahijah village near the Red Sea city of Mokha.
