YEMEN - War Without Conscience

"Yemen’s spiraling hunger crisis is a man-made disaster" (Part 1) PBS NewsHour 7/2/2018

Excerpt


SUMMARY:  One of the poorest countries in the Middle East, Yemen's war has pushed it to the brink of famine.  A Saudi blockade has slowed the flow of food and helped push prices up.  Markets and businesses are ruined from airstrikes.  Millions are destitute.  Special correspondent Jane Ferguson smuggled herself across front lines to report on what's happening inside the world's worst humanitarian disaster.




"American-made bombs in Yemen are killing civilians, destroying infrastructure and fueling anger at the U.S." (Part 2) PBS NewsHour 7/3/2018

Excerpt

SUMMARY:  War rains down from the sky in Yemen, where an aerial bombing campaign by Saudi-led and American-backed coalition hammers much of the north.  The U.S. military supports the campaign against the Houthi rebels with logistics and intelligence, and sells the Saudis many of the bombs it drops on that country.  Special correspondent Jane Ferguson smuggled herself across front lines to report this series.
