DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – A human rights group says a Saudi-led coalition battling Shiite rebels and their allies in Yemen used a U.S.-supplied bomb in a strike on a market last month that killed at least 119 people.

Human Rights Watch said Thursday that their investigators found fragments of a GBU-31 satellite-guided bomb at the site of the market bombing in northwestern town of Mastaba. The group said the bomb, as well as its guidance equipment, was supplied by the U.S.
