Nigeria’s military said it acted in self-defense.

 

Our visual investigation shows that this claim doesn’t hold up,

and reveals how an elite military unit used machine guns

on unarmed marchers in October, killing dozens.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot

about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife,

evacuations

of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have

one very basic question

that you can't easily find

an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
