Death toll from Saudi strike on Yemen wedding rises to 131

The death toll from a recent Saudi airstrike against a wedding party in Yemen’s southwestern province of Taiz has crossed the one-hundred mark as Riyadh presses ahead with an atrocious military campaign against its troubled southern neighbor.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said at least 131 civilians lost their lives and many more sustained injuries as Saudi fighter jets hit the celebration in the  Mokha port city, situated 346 kilometers (214 miles) south of the capital, Sana’a, on Monday, the Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.
