Yemen: ‘Just a leg’ mural draws attention to children’s suffering in war-torn nation

A mural of a legless child in Yemen's Sanaa is the latest addition to the 'silent victims' artwork that seeks to raise awareness of children and women's suffering in the war-torn country, as seen on Saturday. «Just a leg is painted for victims, especially children. According to United Nations (UN) reports, 96 percent of the victims of individual mines that are planted in conflict zones in Yemen... Еще are children,» said Haifa Subay, the Yemeni street artist behind the mural. Yemen is now in its third year of conflict, with much of its territory torn between Saudi-backed forces and Houthi fighters. According to a UNICEF report released earlier this year, over 5,000 children have been killed or injured in the conflict.
