Children are among those killed in the latest US-UK-backed attack

"A suspected raid by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen killed more than 20 civilians on Wednesday, the latest in a spate of deadly strikes by the alliance that have drawn condemnation from rights groups and aid agencies." "The raid comes days before US President Donald Trump is to arrive on Saturday in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip since taking office in January. Washington provides intelligence as well as aerial refuelling to coalition warplanes conducting air strikes in Yemen with American and British supplied weapons." (thanks Amir)
