Yemeni Officials Say Over 140 Killed in Saudi Airstrike: U.N

Saudi Arabia announced early Sunday it would launch an investigation into "reports about the regrettable and painful bombing" in Sanaa, without acknowledging that its coalition battling rebels in Yemen is the only force with air power in the conflict.
