Airstrike in Yemen by Saudi Arabia-led coalition fighting Houthi rebels in Saada province draws vow of investigation – CBS News

Under pressure from U.N., and U.S., coalition says it will assess strike in rebel territory and “clarify” circumstances

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. 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.
