world Updated: Jun 08, 2016 10:53 IST

UNITED NATIONS: The United Nations said on Monday it had removed the Saudi Arabia-led coalition fighting in Yemen from a child rights blacklist pending a joint review by the world body and the coalition of the cases of child deaths and injuries. The UN report on children and armed conflict - released last Thursday - said the coalition was responsible for 60% of child deaths and injuries in Yemen last year, killing 510 and wounding 667, and half the attacks on schools and hospitals.
