    Deadly attack on Yemen's wedding party, leaves 13 dead

    Oct. 8, Sanaa: At least 13 people are reported to have been killed and other 25 people injured in air strikes that hit a wedding in Yemen.
    Witnesses said that the attack happened in Sanban, about 100km south-east of the capital, Sanaa.

    Officials said it was not clear who was behind the attack but a Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out air raids against Houthi rebels. But the coalition denied it was responsible for that attack.

    The latest incident was said to have struck a wedding party being hosted by a tribal leader who is known to support the Houthi rebels, BBC news reported.

    About 5,000 people, including 2,355 civilians, have been killed in air strikes and fighting on the ground since 26 March.

    An estimated 21 million people - or 80 percent of the population require some form of humanitarian assistance and almost 1.5 million people are internally displaced in Yemen.
