Bombing at Yemen wedding leaves 13 dead, 23 injured

Johannesburg, Oct 8 (ANI): A bombing at a wedding in the rebel-held Yemeni town of Sanban in Dhamar province has killed at least 13 people and injured 38 others as witnesses blamed the Saudi-led coalition for the attack.

According to News24, medics and witnesses said that the bombing targeted a house hosting a wedding celebration in Sanban, in Dhamar province, some 100km south the capital, Sanaa.

The source of the bombing was not specified by the medic but according to witnesses, it was an air strike by a pro-government coalition that has been targeting rebel targets since March.

The nine-member, Saudi-led coalition intervened in support of Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi after Iran-backed Houthi rebels overran the capital Sanaa last year. (ANI)
