RIYADH, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Saudi-led coalition announced Sunday the launching of an immediate investigation in association with U.S. experts on the airstrike that targeted a funeral reception in Yemen's capital Sanaa, Al Arabiya local news reported.
The coalition denied on Saturday any connection behind the bombing that killed hundreds of people, calling for finding other reasons behind the blast.
The funeral reception was held for the father of the acting interior minister and rebel Houthi loyalist Jalal al-Ruwaishan.
The coalition command said that its forces have clear instructions to avoid targeting sites of civilians, highlighting that the probe results will be released as soon as possible.
The coalition has been carrying airstrikes in Yemen since the beginning of war against Houthis on March 26 that led to the deaths of civilians on both sides.
The war has no sign of ending with Yemeni political groups failing to reach common grounds for fruitful talks.
