U.S.-Backed, Saudi-Led Airstrike Kills 23 at Wedding Party in Yemen

Sanaa, October 8 (RHC)-- In Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike has killed at least 23 people attending a wedding party south of the capital Sana’a Wednesday. Another Saudi-led airstrike killed at least 70 people attending a wedding last week.

The United Nations says the U.S.-backed bombing campaign in Yemen has killed more than 1,100 civilians in the past six months. Amnesty International has called on the United States to halt arms transfers to Saudi Arabia or risk being complicit in war crimes.
