This 10-year-old Yemeni boy lost his leg in a Saudi-led air attack that hit near his family's home.

As Yemen faces the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, a major new report has documented the role that the United States and Europe have played in the deaths of hundreds of civilians in the Saudi- and UAE-led war on Yemen.

A group of organisations, including Mwatana for Human Rights, a Yemen-based human rights organisation, released the damning report on March 6. It claimed 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 US and the UK.
