Saudi-led air strikes on a funeral in Sanaa on Saturday killed at least 82 people and wounded 534 others, the rebels in control of the Yemeni capital said in a new toll.

Senior health ministry official Nasser al-Argaly warned that the toll from the air strike that targeted a building where mourners had gathered in southern Sanaa could rise further. An earlier rebel toll said "dozens" were killed.
