Yemen rebels say strike kills senior official

Khaled al-Nadhri, the top wellness officer in the northern state of Hajja, told The Associated Press on Monday that almost all of the deceased have been women and children who were assembled in one of the tents setup for the wedding party while in the district Bani Qayis.

The child refused to leave the body's side despite pleas from first responders.
