  • Yemen buries children killed by air strike, Riyadh insists raid

Numerous children were on a field trip after graduating from summer school, according to a CNN report and video showing the students playing before the attack.

People carried pictures of those killed as armed Houthi fighters managed the crowd attending the funeral.

The attack killed at least 50 and wounded over 60 others, the vast majority of whom were young children.

The meeting also discussed the GCC-backed political transition that was disrupted when the Houthi rebels seized the capital, Sanaa, in September 2014 and overthrew the internationally recognised government led by President Abdrabu Mansur Hadi.

A senior general urged Saudi officials to conduct a thorough investigation into an airstrike that killed at least 40 children in Yemen, the Pentagon said Monday, an indication of USA concern about allied nations' air operations against Houthi militants.

The coffins were covered with green drapes and portraits of the victims were lined up on the ground for the Muslim prayer of the dead.

According to Saudi Arabia's state-run Al-Ekhbariya television channel, it was the fourth Houthi missile to be intercepted within the last three days. That raised the number of children killed in the raid from 29.

Reality Star Lyric McHenry Dead at 26
McHenry shared a video of herself on Instagram just hours before she was found, celebrating her 26th birthday with friends. An autopsy has since been scheduled to determine what caused her death.

Col. Turki al-Malki, a spokesman for the Saudi military, insisted that the attack was a "legitimate military action" as he accused the Houthis of recruiting children and using them in the battlefields.

The strike has drawn renewed attention to the war in Yemen, which since 2015 has pitted Saudi Arabia and a coalition of mainly Arab countries against Yemeni Houthi rebels who Western officials say receive support from Iran.

Some families had already buried their loved ones, according to residents.

The coalition said on Friday it will launch a probe to "assess the events (and) clarify their circumstances", while the UN Security Council has called for a "credible investigation".

On the humanitarian level, he stressed that the Saudi leadership, headed by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, has donated $60 million a month to ease the suffering of the Yemeni people.

"War can't be a clean operation unfortunately", UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash told reporters in Dubai when asked about the Saada attack.

Martin Griffiths, the United Nations special envoy for Yemen, has said that talks next month will focus on a transitional government and disarmament.
