The US President was sentenced with nine other defendants including a Saudi King and Prince.
The case against the defendants went ahead in their absence today at Houthi-run Specialised Criminal Court in the Yemeni governorate of Saada, and resulted in the death penalty against the US leader.
Yemen’s Vice President Ali Mohsin Al-Ahmar, Prime Minister Ahmed bin Dagher, Defence Minister Muhammad Al-Maqdishi, and former US Defence Secretary James Mattis were also sentenced to death.
The court also ruled that the accused should fine of $10 billion to the families of those killed in the 2019 airstrike.
The charges related to an airstrike which reportedly hit a school bus, killing 51 people including 40 children.
Yemen’s internationally-recognised government has been battling the Iran-backed Houthi movement, which has seized most of the north of the country and the capital Sana’a, since 2014.
