Sanaa, Yemen (CNN) Airstrikes hit a wedding celebration in Yemen, killing at least 30 people and leaving dozens more unaccounted for, local officials said.

The bombing Wednesday struck the wedding as it took place in Sanabani, a southwestern Yemeni town in an area controlled by Houthi rebels, according to three local security officials.

Local hospitals have been overwhelmed with victims, the officials said.

The Houthis are locked in a bitter conflict with forces loyal to the government of Yemen’s deposed President. The pro-government fighters have the support of a Saudi-led coalition that has been bombing Houthi-held areas since March.
