Imagine if you had to choose between being safe and alone, or with your family but in danger. Now imagine you're a child. There are hundreds of child refugees in the UK forced to make that choice. This must stop. Tell our government to allow these children to bring their immediate families to the UK: http://amn.st/62698nES7

Mostly women amongst the dead in yet another Saudi-led air strike on a funeral in Yemen. According to the Arms Trade Treaty, if an arms deal poses a threat to civilians then it must not be made.

This is Omar before he entered Saydnaya Prison - and what he looked like when he left three years later.
