Saudi-led coalition admits ’mistakes’ in deadly Yemen bus strike

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen admitted Saturday that "mistakes" had been made in an August air strike on Yemen that killed 51 people including 40 children.

An official said an investigation by the coalition had found "mistakes" were made in the strike on a crowded market in northern rebel-held Yemen, adding that those responsible must be "punished".
