20 killed, 40 injured in air raid on Yemen wedding: Medics

Yemen's conflict has sparked what the UN has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis

The Yemen war began in early 2015, when Houthi rebels drove the US-backed government of President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

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

"Following a series of nighttime air strikes on 22 April in Bani Qays, in Yemen, a hospital supported by Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Hajjah, has received 45 wounded individuals".

"Medical teams are working around the clock to provide assistance to the victims", MSF said.

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.

Celtics fall flat in Game 3 rout in Milwaukee
The Celtics won the first two games of the series, and they've never lost in the playoffs after doing so on 35 prior occasions. While Parker played only 25 minutes combined in Games 1 and 2 for a reason, he also played 30 minutes in Game 3 for a reason.

Al-Masirah, the TV station of the armed Houthi movement which controls the area and much of northern Yemen, said on its Twitter account that 33 people had been killed and 55 wounded. They killed "mostly women and children".

"We take this report very seriously and it will be fully investigated as all reports of this nature are", a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition told Reuters.

Violence has also hit funerals.

On October 7, 2015, another air raid killed 43 people at a wedding in Sanaban village in the Dhammar governorate in Yemen.

Over the past three years, more than 10,000 civilians have been killed and tens of thousands wounded while more than million people have been displaced because of the fighting.
