RIYADH, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Saudi-led Arab military coalition on Saturday admitted responsibility for an airstrike in the Yemeni capital that killed 14 civilians, describing it as a "technical mistake," Saudi Press Agency reported.
The coalition said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency that after a review of the strike investigators found "that a technical mistake was behind the accident."
Witnesses and medics in Sanaa said children were among 14 people killed in Friday's airstrike that toppled residential blocks in Sanaa, the latest in a wave of deadly raids blamed on the Saudi-led coalition.
