RIYADH (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iranian-aligned Houthi group in Yemen said on Saturday it accepted that an air attack it launched last month which killed dozens of people was unjustified and pledged to hold accountable those who had made mistakes.

The leadership of the Western-backed alliance said in a statement that it would continue to review its rules of engagement in order to prevent a recurrence of such events.
