Saudi-led coalition bombed schools in Yemen: Amnesty


DUBAI: Amnesty International said Friday that a Saudi-led coalition had bombed schools in Yemen, violating international humanitarian law and denying access to education for thousands of children. The London-based rights group called on “all states who supply arms to the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, including the USA and UK, to suspend all transfers of weapons which are being used to commit violations of international law.” Riyadh and its allies launched air strikes in Yemen in late March to support forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi after Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels overran much of the country. Rights watchdogs have accused the coalition of breaking the laws of war and killing civilians, but it has repeatedly denied targeting them.
