Update - Attack İn Yemen's Saada Leaves 'Dozens' Dead, İnjured

Red Cross blames Houthis for deadly attack while rebel group points finger at Saudi led coalition.

Dozens of people were killed Thursday when a bus carrying children came under attack in Yemen's northwestern Saada province, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

"Following an attack this morning on a bus carrying children in Saada's northern Dahyan Market district, an ICRC field hospital received dozens of dead and injured," the ICRC's Yemen office said in a tweet.

It did not provide any details about the incident, but nevertheless held Yemen's Houthi rebel group responsible for the attack.

"Under international humanitarian law, civilians must be protected during conflict," the ICRC said.

Yemen has remained wracked by violence since 2014, when Shia Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including capital Sanaa.

The conflict escalated in 2015 when Saudi Arabia and its Sunni-Arab allies launched a massive air campaign in Yemen aimed at rolling back Houthi gains.

According to Yemen's Houthi-run Al-Masirah television channel, 39 people were killed in Thursday's attack -- including children and teacher -- while 51 others were injured.

In an earlier statement, Houthi spokesmen blamed the Saudi-led coalition for the attack.

"On Thursday morning, Saudi warplanes committed a heinous massacre targeting a school bus in the city of Dahyan in Saada," group spokesman Mohamed Abdel-Salam said in a statement.

The Saudi-led coalition, for its part, has yet to comment on the incident. -
