SANAA, Yemen, Ten women were killed on Sunday, in an air strike by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, in central Yemen's province of Marib, a provincial security official and medics, said.

The women were killed, as the bus carrying them, while returning home from a wedding, was hit by the attack.

The driver, who is a man, was critically injured, the official, and medics in a Marib hospital, said.

The air strike hit the bus, in the Hisan area of Harib al-Karamish district, which is under control of the Shiite Houthi rebels, about 170 km north-east of the capital, Sanaa.

This is the latest in a series of air strikes launched by the Saudi-led military coalition, against Houthi targets in Yemen, since the war began nearly three years ago.

On Wednesday, the coalition launched seven air strikes on a prison, inside a police camp, in Houthis-held capital, Sanaa, killing 31 prisoners and wounding 59 others.

The Saudi-led coalition has intervened in the Yemeni conflict, since Mar, 2015, to roll back the Iranian-aligned Houthi rebels, and support the internationally recognised President, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was forced into exile by the Houthis.
