An investigation has revealed that the U.S. manufactured a bomb that killed more than 140 people, mostly civilians, in Yemen this past weekend, according to Human Rights Watch.  The airstrike, on Oct. 8, 2016, by the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition at a funeral service in Yemen killed scores of civilians, garnering international outrage.  A spokesman for United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the bombing in a statement, adding that “those responsible for the attack must be brought to justice.”
