Saudi-led coalition admits Yemen bus strike was a 'mistake'

Sep 02, 2018 14:49 IST

The Saudi-led coalition has admitted that the airstrike on a schoolbus that killed over 40 children in Yemen on August 9 was a 'mistake'. They pledged to hold those involved accountable but a spokesperson for the coalition maintained that the strike had targeted a rebel Houthi leader and therefore was a 'legitimate' target.
