Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the UN has rejected the figures in a UN report on the number of children its military campaign in Yemen has killed.

According to the UN, the Saudi-led coalition was responsible for 683 child casualties in 2016 and for 38 verified attacks on schools and hospitals.

The Saudi ambassador describes the figures as misleading.
