From BBC News:

“In parts of Taiz, in south-western Yemen, snipers haunt the streets and open spaces. Civilians there say bullets come from nowhere, with no warning.

In the back of his mind, Qays al-Radami was always aware of the danger, he said. He had grown used to cutting between houses and sticking close to walls as he moved around the city with his children.

But by the time Qays heard the bullet that killed his son last week, it was already too late. The round cut through the early afternoon sun and hit six-year-old Mohammed in the back, punching straight through his chest.”
