At least 29 children and dozens of adults have died in an air strike in rebel-held northern Yemen on Thursday after a missile hit a school bus at a busy local market.

The missile was fired by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Shiite Houthi rebels in the area, in retaliation for a strike in Saudi Arabia yesterday, which killed one person.

The article goes on to state the following:

At least 29 of the 43 people killed and more than 60 injured are ‘children under the age of ten’.
Yemen’s rebel-run Al Masirah TV aired dramatic images of wounded children, their clothes and UNICEF provided schoolbags covered with blood, as they lay on hospital stretchers.

The attack took place in the Dahyan market in Saada province, a Houthi rebel stronghold which lies along the border with Saudi Arabia. The bus hit by the missile was ferrying local civilians, a majority of them children, according to Yemeni tribal leaders.

    Very sad but a war torn area can expect horrible occurrences like this. My prayers go out to the innocent.
