A strike on a bus in rebel-held northern Yemen killed at least 29 children today, the Red Cross said, as the Saudi-led coalition faced a growing outcry over the attack.

The coalition said it had carried out what it called “legitimate military action” in the area targeting Houthi rebels responsible for a deadly missile attack on the Saudi city of Jizan yesterday.

But the International Committee of the Red Cross said the strike hit a bus filled with children in the Houthi stronghold of Saada, causing dozens of casualties.

A spokesman for the Red Cross in Sanaa said the toll was not final as casualties from the attack were taken to several hospitals. The Houthis’ Al-Masirah TV, quoting the rebel health ministry, reported that 50 persons were killed and 77 wounded, “mostly children”.
