The United Nations Security Council called for a credible and transparent investigation into a Saudi-led coalition airstrike in Yemen that killed dozens of children, British U.N. Ambassador Karen Pierce said on Friday.

"They expressed their grave concern at these and all other recent attacks in Yemen. They called for a credible and transparent investigation," Pierce, council president for August, said after a senior U.N. official briefed the 15-member council on the strike.
