War crime in Yemen? Legal Alliance supports prize winning film maker

On 26th of August 2017 at 2 am an air strike by the Arab/Saudi led coalition killed a whole family in the Yemen city of Sana. Only Buthania, a five year old girl, survived. 11 months later the Jordanian film maker Nisreen Sbeihi Noman was awarded 1st price at the International Madrid Film Festival for her documentary about this tragedy.

This picture went viral. People all over the world took pictures of themselves with their fingers opening their right eye, to demonstrate solidarity with the children of Yemen.
