Report finds U.S. made bomb was used in airstrike on wedding in Yemen

A U.S.-made bomb was used in an airstrike that hit a Yemeni wedding last year, according to a new report. Over 100 civilians were killed, nearly half of them children. “This report presents the most comprehensive evidence to date that this is not a hypothetical risk,” said Ruhan Nagra of United for Rights, “U.S. weapons are actually being used in apparently unlawful collision airstrikes in Yemen.”

War Crimes in Yemen? U.S. & U.K. Arms Killed & Injured Nearly 1,000 Civilians in Saudi-Led Attack

As Yemen faces the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, a major new report has been released documenting the role that the U.S. and Europe have played in the deaths of hundreds of civilians in the Saudi- and UAE-led war on Yemen. A group of organizations, including a Yemen-based human rights organization, released the damning report on Wednesday, claiming that between April 2015 and April 2018, 27 coalition attacks killed at least 203 civilians and injured at least 749 people. The report found that 22 of the attacks likely involved weapons produced in the United States. The other five attacks were carried out either with weapons produced in the United Kingdom or with parts produced in both the U.S. and the UK. We speak with Ruhan Nagra, the executive director of the University Network for Human Rights, and Radhya Al-Mutawakel, chairperson of the Mwatana Organization for Human Rights. They are co-authors of “Day of Judgment: The Role of the US and Europe in Civilian Death, Destruction, and Trauma in Yemen.”

How the U.S. can end the “preventable war” in Yemen

“Yemenis feel sad because they are dying for nothing,” said Radhya Al-Mutawakel, chair of Mwatana for Human Rights. This “preventable war” could be stopped, she said, if Congress took action and ceased weapons sales to the Saudi-led coalition.

We look at how U.S. weapons are supporting the ongoing devastation in Yemen with William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy. He is the author of a new report about the role the United Arab Emirates has played in Yemen. It is titled “’Little Sparta’: The United States-United Arab Emirates Alliance and the War in Yemen.” We also speak with Ruhan Nagra, the executive director of the University Network for Human Rights, and Radhya Al-Mutawakel, chairperson of the Mwatana Organization for Human Rights. They recently published an investigation into the role of U.S. and European bombs in civilian deaths in Yemen.
