'These children were slaughtered travelling back to school after a picnic,' Corbyn wrote in his Twitter account on Friday.

'It is the latest atrocity in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, armed and backed by the UK government,' he added.

'UK support for this conflict, and the humanitarian crisis it's unleashed, must end, he reiterated.
