American Mercenaries: Killing in Yemen

How American mercenaries became embroiled in Yemen's civil war

American Mercenaries: Killing in Yemen Yemen’s nine year-long civil war has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands and created one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.

These extra-judicial killings, conducted in the name of counterterrorism, continue to this day.
