Yemen airstrike: Boys laugh on school bus hours before 40 were killed

'For my son, I will take revenge’ - Thousands mourn dozens of Yemeni children killed by coalition air strike

Gargash played up the coalition's probe into the incident.

At least 29 children were among those killed in the air raid Thursday on a bus in a crowded market in Dahyan, Saada province, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The Saudi-led coalition, which is fighting the Houthis on behalf of the recognised Yemeni government, at first said a jet had targeted missile launchers used...

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman spoke by telephone on Monday, discussing topics including efforts by a United Nations special envoy to "to resolve the conflict in Yemen", the State Department said. No one was injured in the incident, said Maliki. "He pressed the Saudis to devote the resources and oversight required to do a thorough and complete investigation and release the results to the public". She did not identify the officer.

The city is the stronghold of the Houthi militia, which is backed by Iran and has seized much of northwest Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa.

Maliki stressed that the joint forces command will continue to combat terrorist groups in Yemen, accusing the Houthis of continuing to fire ballistic missiles against civilians in violation of worldwide and humanitarian laws. Critics also accuse the United States of failing to prevent civilian deaths in an operation backed by the US government.

The Saudi-led coalition has likely used a US-made bomb in its deadly airstrike on a bus carrying Yemeni schoolchildren, a local journalist reports, amid growing worldwide criticism of Washington's lucrative arms sales to the Riyadh regime and its allies. Indeed, were the full extent of US involvement in last week's bombing made clear, the USA government could find itself in trouble, as certain government officials could be accused of complicity in coalition war crimes in Yemen. Yet, the US does have an unspecified number of ground troops active in Yemen who are involved with "intelligence sharing" and interrogations at UAE-run "black-site" prisons.

Over 10,000 MK-series bombs have been sold to the coalition since the war began, despite an worldwide outcry over the coalition's near-constant targeting of civilians and critical infrastructure.

"We will help to prevent the killing of innocent people, we're very concerned about the humanitarian situation", Mattis said, adding, "Wars are always tragic, but we've got to find a way to protect innocent in the midst of this one".

A United States military spokeswoman said U.S. forces were not involved in Thursday's air strike. "You have to make changes to operations" that will avoid similar problems in the future, said Lewis, who is now an analyst at the Center for Naval Analysis.

Saudi officials continue to contend that the strike was a "legitimate military action".
