In Yemen, thousands of mourners gathered in the city of Saada Monday for funerals of the 51 people—including 40 children—who were killed in an airstrike on a school bus last week. The airstrike was carried out by the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition. Images posted online suggest a U.S.-built Mark 82 bomb was used in the airstrike. Mourners decried the attack on schoolchildren.
Mohamed Galhem: “The crimes that were committed by the coalition against children in Dahyan were unprecedented crimes that have never happened before; crimes that will not be forgiven by history or humanity; a crime that has never happened to anyone before—not the Sikhs, the Indians nor the Bengals; a crime committed by the dirty hands of al-Saud and al-Nahyan against the children of Yemen.”
