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.
