MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Amnesty International said that independent weapons experts specified that a "US-made precision-guided Paveway-series aerial bomb" was used in the attack.
"States – including the USA and UK – must immediately stop supplying weapons that could be used in the Yemen conflict, Amnesty International said, as it confirmed that a US-made bomb was used in the air strike on a Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) hospital on 15 August which killed 11 people and injured 19 others," Amnesty International said in a statement on its website.
Since March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf countries have been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthis at Hadi's request despite a ceasefire being agreed in April. The coalition has been accused by the United Nations and humanitarian organizations of indiscriminately bombing civilian targets and killing hundreds of children. Human rights groups have also repeatedly urged international community to stop selling arms to Riyadh as such weapons could be used against civilians in Yemen.
