Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Amnesty International: U.S.-Made Bomb Killed Yemeni Civilians

HeadlineSep 22, 2017

In Yemen, Amnesty International is reporting that the bomb that destroyed a residential building in the capital Sana’a last month, killing 16 civilians and injuring 17 more, was made in the U.S.A. Amnesty International’s arms expert analyzed remnants of the weapon and found clear markings that matched U.S.-made components used in laser-guided, air-dropped bombs. The attack severely injured 5-year-old Buthaina, whose five brothers and sisters were among the seven children killed in the strike. We’ll have more on the Amnesty report and the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war on Yemen after headlines.
