At least 23 civilians, including a new-born, reportedly died after a US military raid in Yemen on 29 January.
According to the charity Reprieve, a Yemeni delegation to the UN said that it was forced to create a counselling centre for children because of the trauma caused by US drone attacks.
Donald Trump's administration called the mission, which targeted al Qaeda, a “success”. This is despite the fact that 38-year-old Qassim al-Rimi, leader of the terror group and the third most dangerous terrorist in the world, escaped.
Sean Spicer denied that al-Rimi had been the target, calling the raid “intelligence gathering”.
Republican Senator John McCain, who chairs the Senate Armed Services committee, heaped nothing but criticism on the operation.
