Yemen air raid: Thousands attend children's funerals in Sanaa

Mourners grieve for children killed in air attack on Sanaa school.

    Families have held funerals for the children killed in a Saudi-Emirati coalition attack on a school in the Yemeni capital.

    The latest attack may have killed several girls under the age of nine in a Sanaa school, but the United Nations says that hundreds of Yemeni children have been killed and injured since the start of 2019.

    That is despite the UN's repeated calls for the bombings to stop.

    Al Jazeera's Ijeoma Ndukwe reports.

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