Yemen war: 'Children killed' in bus attack

The ICRC said a strike hit the bus driving children in Dahyan market, in northern Saada. They added that this remote area of Saada Province has few hospitals, and the Saudi naval blockade has left them with no medicine, so the death toll is nearly certain to rise.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) denounced American military aid to Saudi Arabia following reports of a devastating airstrike on a Yemeni school bus on Thursday.

And then Thursday that bus full of children, victims too young to understand why their country is at war.

But on social media, critics noted that other coverage of the air strike in the United States and Britain-which also supports the coalition-failed to acknowledge the countries' involvement in the war.

Last Thursday, attacks on a hospital and a fish market in the strategic rebel-held port city of Hodeida killed at least 55 civilians and wounded 170, according to the ICRC.

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

State Department spokeswoman, said Thursday "When I say 'conversations, ' that can be by phone, that can be my message, that can be by email".

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

"(The air strikes) conformed to worldwide and humanitarian laws", the coalition statement said, quoting spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki.

The alliance also accused the Houthis of using children as human shields.

He added that this operation was "implemented in accordance with worldwide humanitarian law and customary rules".

Asked about the airstrike by the USA -backed coalition, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters "we are certainly concerned".

"We call on the Saudi-led coalition to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told a press briefing. "We take all credible accounts of civilian casualties very seriously". The rebels control much of northern Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa.

The International Committee of the Red Cross, citing local officials, announced that a total of 50 people have died in the attack and 77 have been injured, a lot of them children.

It was unclear how many air strikes were carried out in the area.

Yemen's stalemated, three-year war has killed over 10,000 people, badly damaged Yemen's infrastructure and crippled its health system.

The United Nations has repeatedly criticized the actions of the coalition.

The Yemen war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than 2 million and driven the country to the verge of starvation, according to the United Nations.

The coalition said Wednesday's attack brought the tally of rebel missiles launched since 2015, the year it joined the Yemeni government's fight against the rebels, to 165. But the coalition denied carrying out any attacks in the city, saying it follows a "strict and transparent approach based on the rules global law".
