Sanaa [Yemen], January 2 (ANI/Xinhua): Three people were killed when artillery shelling hit a wedding in Yemen’s Red Sea port city of Hodeidah, Houthi rebel-run al-Masirah TV reported on Saturday.
The shelling, which was launched on Friday evening, also wounded seven other people in the marriage ceremony in Al-Hawak district, south of the port city, the television cited a statement by the Houthi-controlled health ministry as saying.
Yemen has been mired in civil war since late 2014 when the Iran-backed Houthis seized control of much of the country’s north and forced the internationally-recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of the capital Sanaa. (ANI/Xinhua)
