Saudi-led Air Strike In Yemen Kills 29 Children & Leaves 30 Wounded

The Saudi-led air strike in Yemen, leaves nothing less than 29 children dead and 30 wounded, the International Committee of the Red Cross reveals.


The children were travelling on a bus that was hit at a market in Dahyan, in the northern province of Saada.

The ministry of health run by the rebel Houthi movement put the death toll at 43, and said 61 people were wounded.

It insists it never deliberately targets civilians, but human rights groups have accused it of bombing markets, schools, hospitals and residential areas.

Meanwhile the new UN special envoy to Yemen, former British diplomat Martin Griffiths, is planning to invite the warring parties to Geneva in September to discuss a framework for negotiations.
