MOSCOW, October 9. /TASS/. Russia insists on thorough and unbiased investigation of the air strike in the Yemeni capital city of Sanaa and punishment of those responsible for it, the Russian foreign ministry said on Sunday.
"According to the latest reports, about 200 people were killed and more than 500 were wounded in an air strike on a building in Sanaa where a mourning ceremony was held on October 8," the ministry said. "Following these tragic development, we extend our sincere condolences to the families of those killed and wish soonest recovery to those wounded. Such an attack with so many victims from among civilians cannot but cause indignation and condemnation.
