RIYADH, Aug 10, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – The Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen’s
Huthi rebels on Friday announced a probe into an air strike on a bus that
killed at least 29 children.

“The leadership of the coalition has ordered the immediate opening of an
investigation to assess the events, clarify their circumstances and announce
the results as soon as possible,” a senior coalition official said.

The announcement came a day after the raid in the northern Yemeni rebel
stronghold of Saada that also left at least 48 others wounded, stirring calls
for an investigation from the United Nations and Washington.
