Saudi Coalition Vows Probe Into Yemen Airstrike That Killed 29 Children On Bus

Posted In: News Date:Aug 10th, 2018

The Saudi-led coalition battling Yemen's Houthi rebels announced on Friday an investigation into an airstrike on a bus that killed at least 29 children, as pressure mounted on the U.S.-backed military coalition over the deadly strike, CBS News reports.

The announcement came after the Shiite Muslim rebels backed international calls for a probe into the airstrike in the country's north which killed dozens the previous day.

The attack has drawn wide international criticism. Both the United Nations and the U.S. State Department called on the coalition, led by U.S. ally Saudi Arabia, to carry out an investigation.
