Yemen: 10 children killed in attack on school

At least 10 children have been killed and about 30 injured in an air strike on a school in the stronghold of Yemen’s Houthi rebels, according to a medical aid group.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Saturday that the victims were aged between eight and 15 and attended a school in Haydan, a region in Yemen’s north-western Saada province.

The Houthi-run Al Masirah TV broadcast what it said was the aftermath of the attack.

A video it released showed children with head, arm and leg wounds with blood-covered faces.

Mohammed Abdel-Salam, a Houthi spokesman, blamed the Arab coalition of bombarding the school.

There was no official comment from the coalition, which has been carrying out an air campaign against rebels in Yemen in support of exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi for nearly 15 months.
