  • Saudi air defence forces intercept missile over Najran

The coalition had offered a $20 million reward for any information that led to Samad's capture, according to Saudi-owned broadcaster al-Arabiya TV.

Saudi air defenses were able to intercept majority.

"This crime won't go unanswered", warned the Huthis' overall leader, Abdul Malek al-Huthi.

It said an unspecified number of children and women were among those killed, in addition to at least 30 children wounded.

The Republican Hospital of the Hajjah province received 46 injured victims of the strikes, the SANA news agency reported, citing a local medical official.

The head of Al Jumhouri hospital in Hajjah told Reuters by telephone that the hospital had received 40 bodies, a lot of them torn to pieces, and that 46 people had been injured, including 30 children, in air strikes that hit a wedding gathering.

Aramco did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At the beginning of April, Huthi political head Sammad dubbed 2018 "the year of ballistic excellence", referring to cross-border missile attacks.

In Yemen today, the Saudis bombed a wedding, killing at least 20 people, including the bride.

The coalition insists it never deliberately targets civilians, but human rights groups have accused it of bombing markets, schools, hospitals and residential areas.

Violence has also hit funerals.

On October 7, 2015, another air raid killed 43 people at a wedding in Sanaban village in the Dhammar governorate in Yemen. Fighting in the city's Jahmaliah district came after the governor of Taez launched an operation against jihadists he suspected were behind the murder of a Red Cross aid worker over the weekend.

On social media, journalist Glenn Greenwald reminded readers of the USA connection to Saudi Arabia's assault on the impoverished country, which has led to what the United Nations has called "the worst man-made humanitarian crisis of our time"-and which would not be possible without US support".
