The U.S. Denies it Killed an Afghan Family, Our Investigation Found Otherwise        Video        The New York Times        3 June 2019

 

A woman and 11 children were killed

in an airstrike on a home in Afghanistan

last fall.

 

We spoke to the father

who was left to search for answers.

 

The United States initially said it was not involved,

but after our visual investigation, it changed its story.

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.
