“The sniper kept on firing,” Mohamed Abyad, the uncle of the child also named Mohamed, told NBC News. Mohamed Faisal,10, was killed in a sniper attack last month in Yemen, his uncle said. Mohamed was only 10 when a suspected Houthi sniper killed him. That was in October — the deadliest month for Yemeni children and their families so far this year, according to Save the Children. And as the Yemeni war continues, the chance for respite for Yemeni children feels remote.

Former President Barack Obama in his new book discussed his ambivalence over the killings he ordered while president as part of counterterrorism operations. The first drone strike of Barack Obama's presidency occurred just three days after he was sworn into office. The former president said Emanuel had "spent enough time in Washington to know that his new, liberal president couldn't afford to look soft on terrorism." Awlaki's 16-year-old son, Abdulrhaman al-Awlaki, was killed in another drone strike ordered by the Obama administration just two weeks later. In 2010, a man named Faisal Shahzad attempted to bomb Times Square in New York City, later citing drone strikes as his inspiration for the failed bombing.
