Yemen: 'Our kids are bombed': Schools under attack in Yemen

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 31/3026/2015

The conflict has had a brutal impact on education in Yemen; 34% of children in the country have not gone to school since the conflict began in March 2015. As of October 2015 1.8 million children were not in school. In some cases parents and children are deterred from going to school because of fear of airstrikes, while in others, schools have been rendered unusable due to the conflict either because they have been damaged or destroyed.
