US bomb pieces found at Yemen bus strike siteToday US made bomb known as Raytheon Mark 82 general-purpose free-fall bomb which is likely to have been used by Saudi air strike attacks on bus full of young school children in Yemen on Thursday was found on the strike site.

A missile strike was on Thursday according to local journalist, it was carried out in Dahyan a region known to be controlled by rebels from the Houthi who have fought against the Saudi blockade and its intervention in the internal governance of the country.

Images of horror which were published by the local journalist know as Nasser Arrabyee clearly shows without doubt that the bombs used were 500-pound MK-82 bomb.

Despite this the Saudi-led coalition still carries out repeated attacks and upholds the blockade which is against humanitarian rights. Aid and other medical supplies were cut off to more than 800,000 refugees in the region. Several humanitarian organisations came out and publicly denounced the brutal blockade of the Saudi.

Further more these humanitarian groups called for banning of selling f arms to Saudi regime in order to reduce  on attacks carried out.

The calls have been falling on deaf ears because US law makers continued selling arms to royal Saudi army and its general army. The US pentagon despite the calls still went ahead to distribute Lockheed Martin/General Dynamics key contract to Saudi army.
