    Yemen's Houthi rebels have backed the United Nations' call for an independent investigation into a Saudi-attack on a bus full of school children on Thursday.

    The Houthis say at least 50 people were killed in the attack in Saada province, and over 70 were wounded.

    The Saudi-led coalition insists it was striking at legitimate targets.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Dijbouti.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
