United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen Lise Grande visited a hospital in Sa’ada, where dozens of the wounded children were being treated.

She condemned the Sa’ada strike, saying that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres had ordered an immediate independent probe into the incident.

The August 9 Saudi air raid on Sa’ada hit a school bus in the town of Dhahyan, sparking outrage from international human rights groups and UN officials.

The assault killed a total of 51 people, among them 40 children, and injured 79 others, mostly kids.
