An air strike in Yemen has hit a wedding party, killing at least 27people, according to reports.
At least eight children were said to be among the dead in the attack in the village of Wahijah, near the south-western Red Sea port of Mocha.
A government official quoted by AP news agency said the air strike had been "a mistake".
A Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out air strikes in Yemen since March to try to push back Houthi rebels.
The rebels seized control of much of the country earlier this year.
Return from exileFirst reports from the village said that 12 women, eight children and seven men had been killed, with dozens more wounded, when the air strike hit two tents during a wedding for a local man linked to the Houthi group.
One security source put the death toll as high as 38, with at least 40 injured, but this was not confirmed.
The coalition has not yet commented on the incident.
The UN says almost 4,900 people, including more than 2,200 civilians, have been killed in fighting in Yemen since 26 March.
The number of civilians killed in coalition air raids has drawn strong criticism from human rights groups.
An attack on a bottled-water factory in northern Hajja province in August killed 17 civilians and 14 rebels.
The previous month, an air strike near a power plant in Mocha reportedly killed 65 civilians.
Last week, Yemen's internationally recognised President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi returned to the southern city of Aden from exile in Saudi Arabia.
He had fled in March following gains by the Houthi rebels - Shia Muslims from the north of the country.
The Saudi-led coalition, helped by loyalist forces, has pushed the Houthis back from some areas, including Aden, although the rebels still control the capital, Sanaa.
