More than 140 people have been killed and over 500 injured in air strikes on a funeral gathering in Yemen’s capital Sanaa according to the UN.

The Saudi-led coalition targeted a building hosting a Houthi funeral ceremony, killing a total of 140 people, United Nations said in a statement.

The US said it had launched an “immediate review” of its already reduced support for the coalition.

The Saudi-led coalition is backing the internationally-recognised government of Yemen.

Thousands of civilians have been killed since the war began in 2014.
