More Than a Thousand Days of War in Yemen

The Atlantic Logo By Alan Taylor of The Atlantic | Slide 1 of 34: A man carries Buthaina Muhammad Mansour, an injured girl rescued from the site of a Saudi-led air strike in Sanaa, Yemen. on August 25, 2017. Her bruised eyes still swollen shut, Mansour, believed to be four or five, did not yet know that her parents, five siblings and uncle were killed when an air strike flattened their home in Yemen's capital. Despite a concussion and skull fractures, doctors think Buthaina will pull through - the family's sole survivor in the air attack that residents blame on a Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen since 2015. The alliance said in a statement it would investigate the air strike, which killed at least 12 civilians.
