BBC Whitewashes Saudi crimes in Yemen

"An inquiry blames "non-compliance with coalition rules of engagement" and "the issuing of incorrect information".  It said "a party affiliated to the Yemeni presidency of the general chief of staff" was to blame.  The inquiry also apportioned blame to the Air Operation Center in Yemen for directing aircraft onto the target without obtaining approval from the coalition's command.  The investigation called for families of the victims to be compensated.  Beyond sacking those responsible for this catastrophic breach of its targeting rules and compensating the victims' families, the Saudi-led coalition is immediately reviewing its rules of engagement."
