Yemen: Dozens killed in airstrike on bus carrying children

Airstrikes in northern Yemen have targeted a busy market and a bus carrying children, killing at least 20 people, include children and wounding as many as 35.

The International Committee of the Red Cross tweeted that an ICRC-supported hospital received dozens of dead and wounded after the strike on a market in Dahyan, Saada.

The attack has been blamed on the Saudi-led coalition battling Iranian-backed Houthis terrorists.

There was no immediate comment from the coalition.

In the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, Houthis-run Al Masirah TV gave a different toll, saying the attack killed 39 people and wounded 51, mainly children.
