DUBAI Oct 8 There was no Arab coalition air
role in a strike in Sanaa on Saturday, sources in the Saudi-led
coalition said, after authorities in the Yemeni capital reported
an air strike by the alliance on mourners killed at least 82
"Absolutely no such operation took place at that target,"
one of the sources said, citing what he described as
confirmation from the coalition air force command.
"The coalition is aware of such reports and is certain that
it is possible that other causes of bombing are to be
considered. The coalition has in the past avoided such
gatherings and (they) never been a subject of targets."
