Air Strike On Yemen Wedding Party Kills Over 130

VOA: Civilian Death Toll in Yemen Wedding Attack Rises to at Least 130

The United Nations and local medics said Tuesday the death toll from a reported airstrike on a wedding party in southwestern Yemen has risen to at least 130 people.

A Saudi-led coalition that has been conducting airstrikes in Yemen targeting Houthi rebels since March denied that it was responsible for the attack Monday on the village of Wahijah.

A spokesman, Brigadier-General Ahmed al-Asseri, called the allegation "totally false."

WNU Editor: Everyone is denying responsibility .... but the Saudi coalition have complete control of the airspace over Yemen .... they are the only ones who could have been responsible for this air-strike.

Given that the Pentagon is "shot calling" for the Saudi's,


It was only a matter of time before a wedding was hit.
