SANAA, Aug. 11 (YPA) – The United Nations Security Council on Friday called for a credible and investigation into the horrific massacre committed by Saudi-led coalition aircraft against dozens of children in the Dahyan district of Saada province on Thursday morning.

British Ambassador Karen Pierce, who is president of the UN Security Council this month, said the council would hold talks with the United Nations and others to determine how the investigation would proceed.
