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

In a message on Twitter, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Yemen said a hospital it supports had received dozens of casualties.

A spokesman for the Red Cross in Sanaa told AFP the toll was not final as casualties from the attack had been taken to several different hospitals.

A week ago, at least 55 civilians were killed and 170 others wounded in a series of attacks on the rebel-held Red Sea port city of Hudaydah.

"We call on the Saudi-led coalition to conduct.an investigation", Nauert said. "This is why we need an independent investigation into attacks on civilians so that perpetrators can be held to account", Ghaly added.

The Huthi' Al-Masirah TV reported that 39 people had been killed and 51 wounded, "mostly children".

The school bus that was bombed was reportedly carrying children back to religious education classes after a picnic near the city of Dahyan, according to reports from Save the Children and Al Jazeera. "So for us, this is painful.this is just horrific", Hodeib said.

"How many more children will suffer or die before those who can act, do by putting a stop to this scourge?"

Images broadcast by Houthi media showed scores of bloody children, some still wearing their backpacks as they were loaded onto stretchers.

The Iran-backed Shiite militia has controlled Yemen's northwest, including Saada, since ousting the country's internationally recognized government from the capital, Sanaa, in 2014.

Coalition spokesman Maliki confirmed the strike had hit a bus, telling AFP "the elements inside the bus were Houthi combatants". "Causalities from today's attack continue to arrive", the Red Cross stated on August 9.

Col. Al-Maliki affirmed that the leaders and militants responsible for launching ballistic missiles and targeting civilians would be held accountable under the Coalition's efforts to prevent terrorist elements from compromising regional and worldwide security.

The Houthis have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, which Riyadh usually says it intercepts.

According to Al Jazeera, the Saudi coalition claimed it had targeted "missile launchers", but Yemen-based reporters who have witnessed numerous attacks in civilian-populated areas vigorously disputed the claim.

ICRC said one of the hospitals it supports was treating the wounded.

Maliki said those responsible for firing ballistic missiles and targeting civilians would "get what they deserve".

"It is beyond cruel; innocent children's lives have been lost".

It is with the stated aim of dislodging the Houthis, and restoring the previous government, that the Sunni coalition has waged a years-long airstrike campaign in the country with the support of the U.S. Since large-scale fighting erupted in 2015, the ensuing violence has left more than 10,000 people killed and the country's health infrastructure so badly battered, almost 18 million Yemenis lack reliable access to food.
