The Saudi-led coalition striking rebels in Yemen announced Monday that it is setting up an independent committee to probe the force's actions in the deeply impoverished country amid mounting criticism over its military operations there.

Brig. Gen. Ahmed Asiri, the coalition's spokesman, said the new committee is tasked with examining coalition military activities in civilian areas.
