The Funeral Bombing
"People were on fire. People were torn apart", says 14-year-old Husain, recounting his horrifying experience of the airstrike in Sana'a. The Saudi military say the deadliest attack yet in the war in Yemen was based on "incorrect information", blaming their Yemeni counterparts for calling in the strike without obtaining their approval. Yet the former president of Yemen finds fault with these claims. "This was planned. Intelligence agents passed on information that the 'target' was at the funeral. The decision was made in Saudi Arabia", says Ali Abdullah Saleh, in a report that raises concerns over the conduct of the coalition-supported Saudi bombing campaign.
