Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Saudi-Led Coalition Airstrikes Kill 16 Civilians in Yemen

HeadlineSep 26, 2019

Officials in Yemen say seven children were among 16 people killed Tuesday when a Saudi-led coalition airstrike tore through a residence in a Houthi-controlled province in Yemen’s southwest. Graphic video posted on social media showed the remains of children’s bodies, and residents burying victims in a mass grave. The latest deadly attack on civilians by the U.S.-supported coalition comes less than a week after Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for an attack on a Saudi oil facility. Houthi leaders have offered to halt missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia in exchange for a similar ceasefire.
