Buildings Leveled by Missile Strikes (Extra Scene from ‘Sanaa Under Attack’)

For more than six weeks, nine countries led by Saudi Arabia have been carrying out airstrikes on Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation. Whole neighborhoods have been destroyed and communities reduced to rubble.

According to the United Nations, the strikes, targeting Iranian-backed Houthi rebel positions in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, have killed over 1,400 people, many of them civilians.

On April 20, warplanes from the coalition bombed the residential district of Faj Attan in Sanaa. In this extra scene, local journalist Yousef Mawry goes to investigate the damage.
