In Yemen, a pair of U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition airstrikes ripped through a funeral reception overnight, killing eight women and a child. Witnesses say a second airstrike targeted emergency workers responding to the initial attack. This is survivor Hameed Aly.
Hameed Aly: “The people are still looking under the rubble, like you see. Each one is looking for their child or their sister. And this all happened from the bombing. There are nine victims, and they’re still searching for more. And there are dozens of injured in the hospital.”
The Saudi-led coalition battling Yemen’s Houthi rebels has the support of the United States. The United Nations warns the bombing campaign and naval blockade have devastated Yemen’s infrastructure and left 12 million people facing the threat of famine.
