Photos of War Torn Abyan, Southern Yemen

Earlier this month I had a brief visit in the warn torn Southern province of Abyan.  Like any war, the impact on civilians and residents is often ignored.  

The war in Abyan has killed innocent civilians and displaced hundreds.  Schools have been closed, and the main hospital was bombed.  Many have lost family members, and many others are wounded.  Their homes have been destroyed, and basic necessities are non-existant.

Residential buildings, hospitals, and schools were hit by air strikes. 

With no compensation, and no way to seek justice, residents resent the government that has failed to protect them and instead allowed air strikes to kill indiscriminately.  

One thing is certian, more research and documentation regarding what is really happening on the ground.

The photos here are of residential and commercial buildings that were impacted by the war.

 These photos were taken in the city of Zinjibar on July 1 & 2, 2012.
