At least 25 Yemenis killed by rocket attack at wedding


Three brothers preparing to get married were killed in a rocket attack alongside at least 22 other people in southwest Yemen on Thursday, residents reported, saying Saudi-led coalition jets were probably to blame.

The three brothers were waiting for their brides’ party to arrive when a missile hit their house in the town of Sanban in Dhamar region, said residents. At least 50 people were wounded, but the brides were unharmed, locals and medics added.
Officials and residents have accused the Saudi-led forces, battling Iran-backed Houthis in the Arabian Peninsula nation, of killing civilians in two other attacks over the past two weeks.
