The UN has joined the United States in calling for an investigation into a Saudi-led coalition attack on a bus in Yemen that the Red Cross says killed at least 29 children on Thursday.
The Saudi-led coalition called the airstrike a "legitimate military operation", and a retaliation to a Houthi ballistic missile that targeted the kingdom's Jizan province on Wednesday night, according to Saudi Arabia's official news agency.
On Twitter, the Red Cross in Yemen said a hospital it supports had received 29 dead children, all under 15 years old, and another 48 injured people.

Fragments from the Houthi missile launched at Jizan Industrial City had killed one Yemeni civilian and wounded 11, Saudi state media said earlier on Thursday.
Houthi spokesperson Mohammed Abdul-Salam said the coalition showed "clear disregard for civilian life" as the attack had targeted a crowded public place in the city.
The alliance also accused the Houthis of using children as human shields.
"The air strikes often target civilians in Saada, so we appeal the global community to intervene to stop the Saudis killing them". A Saudi Arabian blockade has contributed to starvation and disease while a United Nations report found the Saudi-led bombing campaign - carried out with US support - has hit schools, even weddings.
"(The air strikes) conformed to worldwide and humanitarian laws", the coalition statement said, quoting spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki.
"We call on the Saudi-led coalition to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident", said Nauert.
Thursday's attack marks a grim milestone in a war that lately has seen yet another escalation, as coalition-backed Yemeni government forces have made a recent push to reclaim the key port city of Hodeidah from rebels.
