Saudi-Led Bombing Kills 11 Civilians in Yemen, While Kerry Ignores US 'Complicity'

Another Saudi-led coalition airstrike in northern Yemen killed 11 civilians on Friday—only one day after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Saudi Arabia, purportedly to urge Saudi King Salman to seek a “political solution” to the Saudi-led coalition’s bombing campaign in Yemen.

And despite Kerry’s words about seeking peace in Yemen, the U.S. continues to supply Saudi Arabia with weapons that have been used to kill civilians in that country.

Associated Press (AP) reports on the aftermath of the latest attack:

U.N. human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein on Thursday called for an international investigation into human rights abuses in the war-torn country. “Civilians in Yemen have suffered unbearably over the years from the effects of a number of simultaneous and overlapping armed conflicts,” the commissioner said. “And they continue to suffer, absent any form of accountability and justice, while those responsible for the violations and abuses against them enjoy impunity.”
