US rethinks after Saudi atrocity

AFTER an air strike targeted a hall packed with mourners on the weekend, killing more than 140 people and injuring another 500, the US is reconsidering its support of the Saudi- led coalition fighting the war in Yemen. The move came as thousands of people took to the streets of Yemeni capital, Sanaa, calling for an international investigation. The coalition has said it will launch its own probe. Rescuers are scouring the shell of what was once one of the largest gathering halls in Sanaa, searching for body parts and trying to identify some of the dead.
