HeadlineMar 16, 2016

In Yemen, at least 41 civilians have been killed and 75 wounded after U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrikes hit a crowded market in the northwest. More than 6,000 people, about half of them civilians, have been killed in the Yemen conflict since the Saudis began targeting Houthi rebels. The vast majority of civilian deaths have been caused by the U.S.-backed strikes.
