UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations blacklisted a Saudi Arabia-led military coalition on Thursday for killing and injuring 683 children in Yemen and attacking dozens of schools and hospitals during 2016, but noted the coalition had taken action to improve child protection.



The blacklist attached to the UN annual report on children in armed conflict also named the Iran-allied Houthi rebel group, Yemen government forces, pro-government militia and Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula for violations against children in 2016 as it did in last year's report.

The report from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was submitted to the Security Council on Thursday.
