At least 20 people were killed and 40 others wounded in an air raid on a wedding party in Yemen, rescue teams told AFP on Monday.

Houthi rebels who control most of northern Yemen blamed the Sunday attack on a Saudi-led Arab coalition that backs the country’s government.

Rescue teams said the wedding was being held in the Houthi-controlled Bani Qais area of Hajjah province, north of Sanaa, when jets carried out the raid.
