State Department Calls For Probe Into Deadly Airstrikes In Yemen

One dead, several wounded after Saudi Arabia 'intercepts Yemen missile'

Saudi-led coalition air strikes on Thursday killed dozens of people, including children traveling on a bus through a market, in Yemen's Saada province, a Yemeni health official and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said.

The International Committee of the Red Cross said it was sending supplies to ICRC-supported hospitals to support an influx of casualties.

"Following an attack this morning on a bus driving children in Dahyan Market, northern Saada, (an ICRC-supported) hospital has received dozens of dead and wounded", the organization said on Twitter without giving more details.

‏He added: "Launching ballistic missiles at densely-populated civilian areas is a direct breach of the principles of worldwide humanitarian law".

Houthi-run Al-Masirah TV reported that 47 people were killed and 77 wounded, and broadcast graphic pictures showing the bodies of several young children, some of them wearing school uniform.

Unicef, the United Nations children's agency, said on Twitter that there were "no more excuses...."

The coalition entered Yemen's civil war more than three years ago to fight northern Houthi rebels who seized power away from Yemen's internationally recognized government.

The coalition's spokesperson said the operation sought to target the militants responsible for a missile intercepted over Saudi civilian territory on Wednesday.

Yemeni tribal leaders told the AP the Saudi-led US -backed coalition fighting Shiite Houthi rebels was behind the airstrike.

Col. Turki al-Malki, a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, said the attack in Saada targeted the rebels who had fired a missile at the kingdom's south, killing one person and wounding 11 others.

In March 2015 Saudi Arabia and other Arab states intervened on against the Houthis, and are continuing to do so.

It accused the Houthis of using children as human shields.

Indeed, Collins lost $17 million when the company's stock pice dipped down to five cents, according to reports from last June . Collins reportedly used information from negative clinical trial tests conducted by a pharmaceutical company named Innate.

It's not the first time the coalition has hit a residential area this month.

Footage provided by the rebels' Ansarullah Media Centre showed a number of wounded children lying two to a hospital bed, while in a separate shot medics tended to casualties in a crowded room.

In a statement released through the state-run Saudi Press Agency, Riyadh called the airstrike a "legitimate military action" conducted in accordance with global law.

Impoverished Yemen, on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, is now in the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million people in need of assistance.

The UK and United States has been criticised for providing logistical and military support to the Saudi-led coalition.

The Iran-aligned Houthis regularly fire into Saudi Arabia and have targeted its capital, Riyadh, with ballistic missiles. There was no immediate comment from the Houthis in response to the coalition allegations.
