U.S. rejects responsibility for civilian deaths in Yemen

"US military officials have said they bear no responsibility for civilian casualties in Yemen, where Washington is providing support to a Saudi-led coalition carrying out military strikes. Human Rights groups say the United States ultimately bears responsibility for strikes on Yemen on 15 March that killed 97 civilians, among them 25 children and infants, because the strikes were conducted with US-supplied weapons."
