The bus carrying Yemen students in Saudi Arabian to camp led dozens of children to death, most of them under 10.
The incident occurred on the morning of August 9 when the bus crossed a market in Saada province, where the Houthi rebels controlled. 50 people were killed and 70 others injured after being hit by the strike. Most of the victims present on the bus are children, according to CNN.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says a hospital in Saada has received 29 “mostly children” bodies under the age of 15 and 40 seriously injured, including 30 children.
Most of the victims present on the bus are children, according to CNN.

“The hospital is very busy. The injured and the bodies have been transported continuously since morning,” an ICRC spokesman told CNN.
Houthi’s media also broadcast images of the bodies of children after the attack. A video posted on Al-Masirah TV shows some children lost their arms, legs. Two of the victims were seen on a hospital bed with one of them lying motionless with a bloody face.
According to authority, Houthi fired ballistic missiles several times into Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, while the Saudi military blocked the Yemeni coast. Military clashes in Yemen have led to unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe in the Middle East, leaving more than 10,000 civilians dead and more than 2 million displaced.
