From Haaretz:

A Saudi-led coalition airstrike near Sana’a Sunday night targeted a wedding procession and killed at least 10 women, according to witnesses and health officials.

They say the Sunday airstrike targeted the women as they marched to a village in Maarib province. They said the bride was among the women, but it was not immediately clear whether she was wounded.

It’s a tradition in rural Yemen for the bride’s female friends and relatives to escort her to the wedding ceremony, where the groom awaits.
