Yemen air strike: The school that’s lost 42 children

You may well remember – the pictures were hard to forget – the scene in Yemen in August when dozens of schoolchildren and adults were killed in an airstrike.

The strike was carried out by a coalition – led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the US, the UK and France. They are supporting Yemen’s government against the Houthi rebels – backed by Iran.

In three years of fighting, at least 10,000 people have been killed and millions have fled their homes.

Our correspondent Orla Guerin – with producer Nicola Careem and cameraman Lee Durant – sent this report from Dahyan in northern Yemen.
