UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, has reiterated calls for "an independent, international inquiry" into alleged war crimes taking place during the conflict in Yemen.
His comments came as international condemnation continued over an attack on a funeral hall in Sanaa over the weekend which left more than 140 people dead.
Mr Al Hussein said civilians were increasingly being targeted in Yemen by all of the sides involved in the war.
Since the beginning of this conflict in Yemen, weddings, marketplaces, hospitals, schools – and now mourners at a funeral – have been hit, resulting in massive civilian casualties and zero accountability for those responsible.
This deadly attack comes just weeks after the UN Human Rights Council, for the second year in a row, dismissed my call to take decisive action to create an international, independent investigative body to look into extremely serious alleged violations of international law, including possible war crimes, in Yemen.
The Human Rights Council’s inability to take decisive action by setting up an international investigation is contributing to a climate of impunity, and violations continue to occur on a regular basis. Such outrageous attacks cannot be allowed to continue.
Since March 2015, at least 4,125 civilians have been killed and 7,207 injured in Yemen's conflict according to the UN.
Britain and the US have called for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to end the raging conflict in Yemen.
As the funerals of 140 people killed in an airstrike in Yemen was held, the attack was met with international condemnation.
One source told me that the Saudis need to hold a full investigation, they need to hold it soon and it needs to be credible.
