Saudi led coalition admits responsibility in Yemen for second time in a week

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Saudi-led coalition fighting to defeat Houthi rebels in Yemen has again admitted that its bombing campaign may have hit civilians, the second time in a week it has made such a rare admission.

Saudi Arabia is under pressure from the UK and the US both to improve its accuracy and to accept error if internal reviews find civilians have been hit.

The Trump administration is required shortly to state if it is willing to continue to sell arms to Saudi in the light of the repeated air attacks killing civilians.

The Spanish government this week ended arms sales to Saudi Arabia, including 400 laser-guided bombs.
