Yemen: Deadly Saudi-Led Airstrikes on Market Used U.S.-Supplied Bombs

HeadlineApr 07, 2016

And Human Rights Watch is reiterating its call for the United States to stop selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, after Human Rights Watch says it found evidence the Saudi-led coalition used U.S.-supplied bombs in the deadly airstrikes on a crowded market in Yemen last month. The strikes killed at least 97 civilians, including 25 children. Medical clinic worker Othman Saleh spoke out about the aftermath of the attack.

Othman Saleh: “We received 44 wounded in total, including women, children and elders. Of those 44, two people died. Three others were in critical condition. They had to be taken to the ICU.”
