Local Official Says US-Built Apache Helicopter Behind Massacre of Refugees

At least 31 Somali refugees are dead after the boat they were traveling in from Yemen to Sudan was attacked by what might have been a U.S.-made Apache helicopter. International Organization for Migration (IOM) confirmed “dozens of deaths and many dozens of survivors brought to hospitals.” A local coastguard officer told Reuters that “the refugees, carrying official [United Nations Refugee Agency] documents, were on their way from Yemen to Sudan when they were attacked by an Apache helicopter near the Bab al-Mandeb strait.”
