In Yemen, a U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrike has killed at least 26 people at a hotel and adjacent market in the northern Saada province on Wednesday. The ongoing U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing campaign has killed more than 10,000 civilians, sparked the cholera epidemic by destroying Yemen’s health, water and sanitation systems, and exacerbated a famine that’s left 7 million on the brink of starvation.
