In Yemen, a U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrike has killed five people near an elementary school in northern Yemen. At least two children were killed in the bombing. Despite concerns about being implicated in possible war crimes, the United States has continued to sell warplanes and munitions to the Saudi-led coalition throughout its bombing campaign in Yemen, and U.S.-made munitions have been found at the scene of Saudi-led bombings where civilians have been killed.
