Houthi group blames strike on Saudi-led coalition


10-09-2016 19:26 BJT

Yemen's Houthi-run administration has blamed the Saudi-led coalition for an airstrike in the capital Sanaa that killed more than 140 people. The coalition denies any role in Saturday's attack, and says it will investigate the strike. The strike hit a mourning ceremony for the father of the acting interior minister and rebel Houthi loyalist Jalal al-Ruwaishan.

The death toll was one of the highest since the Saudi-led alliance launched a campaign against Shiite insurgents in March last year. The US says it will review its support for the coalition. Washington also called on all parties concerned to commit publicly to an immediate ceasefire.
