Children travelling on a bus were among dozens of people killed on Thursday by Saudi-led coalition air strikes in northern Yemen.

The vehicle was hit as it transported the children in Dahyan market in Saada province, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross. The ICRC said on Twitter that the hospital it supports in the area had received the bodies of 29 children, all aged under 15, and a further 48 wounded, most of them children.

Abdul-Ghani Nayeb, head of a health department in Saada, had earlier told Reuters that 43 people had been killed and 61 wounded in the strikes.

The attack will increase scrutiny on the tactics used by the Saudi-led coalition, which backs Yemen’s exiled government and is fighting Houthi rebels that control northern parts of the country.
