UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General António Guterres strongly condemned on Monday air strikes on a wedding party in Yemen that killed at least 50 civilians, his spokesman said.
Air strikes by a Saudi-led military coalition killed at least 20 people attending a wedding in a village in northwestern Yemen late on Sunday, residents and medical sources said.

He calls for a prompt, effective and transparent investigation," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.
