Tehran, Oct 9: Iran has condemned the air strikes of Saudi-led coalition on mourners in Yemen's capital Sanaa which left more than 150 people dead.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Saturday expressed regret that the international community is silent over the military aggression of the coalition and the killing of the innocents, Xinhua news agency reported.

In order to put an end to the fabricated crisis in Yemen, there is no way but to stop the belligerent aggressors and begin serious dialogue with the participation of all Yemeni sides, Qasemi said.

He expressed Iran's strong disapproval over such an "inhumane and heinous crime" and sympathised with the families of the victims.

Over 150 people were killed and more than 500 injured in Saudi-led coalition air strikes on mourners in Sanaa on Saturday afternoon.

Reports said that a number of Iran-backed Shia Houthi officials and their ally former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh were present in the mourning ceremony.
