Yemen airstrike kills dozens of children, reportedly on a field trip

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

Among the dead were children on a school bus that had been traveling through Dahyan Market, located in Yemen's Saada province, at the time of the attack.

Houthi media aired gruesome footage appearing to show the bodies of children in school uniform.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and their allies in the Arab Coalition intervened in the conflict at the request of Mr Hadi's government.

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

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S. was "concerned" by reports of an attack resulting in civilian deaths. He asserted that it evinces a "blatant disregard for rules of war when [a] bus carrying innocent school children is fair game for attack".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged an "independent and prompt" probe, while State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the U.S. is "calling the Saudi led coalition to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident".

"Putting children in harm's way is horrific and deplorable and making them pay such a price is unacceptable", she said.

Disney Streaming Service Won't Include Pre-2019 Star Wars Films
Disney recently secured the rights to X-Men from FOX, and will have to go through AT&T for streaming rights to Star Wars . Gains in products related to the Avengers weren't enough to offset lower revenue from "Spider-Man" and "Cars".

The western-backed coalition fighting the rebel Houthi group in Yemen said the air strikes on Thursday targeted missile launchers used to attack the southern Saudi industrial city of Jizan, which killed a Yemeni civilian there, according to the state news agency SPA.

The missile was sacked from Amran province in northern Yemen on Wednesday night, the coalition said in a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency. He also accused Houthis of using kids as "tools and covers for their terrorist acts".

Turki al-Maliki said the kingdom's air defense had intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi rebels at a densely populated civilian area in Jizan, according to the Saudi Press Agency. 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".

The Saudi government issued a statement on August 9 and described the strike as "a legitimate military action" and was "conducted in conformity with the global humanitarian law". Just last week at least 55 people died in the city during a particularly bloody exchange of fire in residential areas and outside a hospital.

The war in the Arab world's poorest country has left almost 10,000 people dead and triggered what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

He added that as a result of Trump's "strong and positive signals", Iranian-backed Houthi rebels are beginning to engage more with the peace process and said, "So withdrawing from the Iran deal will definitely contribute to the end of the war in Yemen".
