Saudi Arabia Friday rejected a United Nations report blaming an Arab military coalition for killing or injuring 683 children in Yemen and attacking dozens of schools and hospitals as "inaccurate and misleading".In a report submitted to the U.N. Security Council Thursday, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres blacklisted the coalition for its 2016 actions – even as he said it had taken action to improve child protection.One lists parties that have put in place measures to protect children, which includes the Arab coalition, and the other includes parties that have not.The report does not subject those listed to U.N. action but rather shames parties to conflicts in the hope of pushing them to implement measures to protect children.
