Jim Carrey blasts Yemen school bus bombing as 'crime' of US, allies

WASHINGTON

The United States actor and artist Jim Carrey blasted on Aug. 17 the deadly airstrike in Yemen last week that reportedly killed 40 children on a school bus, calling the incident “Our crime."

“Forty innocent children killed on a bus in Yemen,” Carrey wrote in a tweet. “Our ally. Our missile. Our crime.”

Carrey's post was accompanied by a cartoon, depicting a bus full of terrified children, helpless as a missile marked with the American flag and “USA” hurtles toward them.

The strike was launched in the northern Yemen province of Saada by a coalition led by Saudi Arabia against the Houthi group of rebels.

Late Friday afternoon, CNN reported that the bomb that killed the children was supplied by the U.S.
