Yemen is routinely called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

But sometimes an individual event can bring that phrase starkly into focus.

That's what happened on Thursday when a series of air strikes in the northern province of Saada killed dozens of people, most of them schoolchildren.

Even by Yemen's standards it was shocking. And it once again called attention to foreign involvement in the war.

That not only means the Saudi and Emirati forces leading the coalition fighting the Houthis, but also the western governments that sell them weapons and offer logistical support.

So, what responsibility does the wider international community bear for the war in Yemen?
