Airstrike on Yemen school bus is ‘apparent war crime,’ says rights group

(CNN)A Saudi-led Coalition airstrike on a school bus in Yemen that killed dozens of children last month is an “apparent war crime,” Human Rights Watch said in a statement on Sunday.

The attack on a bus carrying dozens of schoolboys on a field trip was later revealed by CNN to have been carried out by an American-made bomb sold to Saudi Arabia, raising questions about whether the United States bears any moral culpability.
“The Saudi-led coalition’s attack on a bus full of young boys adds to its already gruesome track record of killing civilians at weddings, funerals, hospitals, and schools in Yemen,” said Bill Van Esveld, senior children’s rights researcher at Human Rights Watch (HRW).
