Saleh al-Samad, the most senior official to be killed by the Western-backed alliance in the three-year war, held the post of president in the Houthi-backed political body that runs most of northern Yemen, Reuters said.

Saudi Arabia would never be able to create any political development by assassinating Saleh al-Samad, said Mohammad al-Bakhiti, a member of the Supreme Political Council, the Arabic-language Al Mayadeen reported.

"We consider the so-called forces of aggression, especially America and Saudi Arabia, responsible for killing of Samad and all the consequences of this crime", he said.

Al-Samad had been the leader of the Houthis High Political Council, which effectively served as the government in Houthi-controlled areas of northwestern Yemen.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Twitter that a hospital it supports in Hajjah received at least 65 patients, including at least 13 children, wounded in the air strikes, which it said were "among the most devastating in the area in recent months".

Almasmari also said it was not surprising that al-Sammad's had been replaced by al-Mashat, whom he described as "a very influential figure within the movement".

As in previous attacks that killed a large number of civilians, the Saudis promised to investigate.

The civil war is part of a larger regional power struggle between the Sunni monarchy in Saudi Arabia and the Shia rulers of Iran.

On Monday, U.N. Secretary General António Guterres condemned the attack on the wedding and urged all parties in Yemen's war to observe global laws established to protect civilians in armed conflicts.
