FPF #264 – Yemen Numbers

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

On FPF #264, I discuss some new casualty numbers for the War on Yemen. The media has long cited a UN estimate that said 10,000 people have died. However, that estimate stopped counting deaths over a year ago. The 10,000 number has helped mask the catastrophic humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The new reports suggest there have been 70,000 – 80,000 deaths from violence and 130 children under five die every day.
