‘Photos and video have emerged online of what is claimed to be fragments of a US-made bomb found at the scene of a deadly strike on a mourning hall in the Yemeni capital Saana. Saudi Arabia had earlier denied responsibility for the attack.

One photo, which a prominent Saana lawyer posted on his Facebook page, shows what is claimed to be a fragment of an Mk-82 precision bomb produced by Raytheon, one of the main US defense contractors. The photo was allegedly taken at the scene of the bombing, and has a serial number and words in English referring to the bomb model written on it.

Another photo taken by an ITV News correspondent on the scene shows fragments of what is the same type of bomb, according to a local munitions expert he consulted.’
