A suspected Saudi-led air strike killed at least 13 people at a wedding in a rebel-held town in Yemen, witnesses and the rebels said Thursday, even as U.N. peace efforts made headway.It was the second alleged coalition strike on a Yemeni wedding party in just over a week.In September a suspected coalition strike killed at least 131 civilians at a wedding near the Red Sea city of Mokha, which the U.N. said may have been the deadliest hit since March.The latest strike came as the United Nations announced that the rebels, who control the capital and much of central and northern Yemen, had accepted a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an end to the seven-month conflict. In late August, an air strike hit a bottled water factory in the northern province of Hajja, killing 17 civilians and 14 rebels.The United Nations says around 5,000 people have been killed in the conflict in Yemen over the past seven months, many of them civilians.
