Bouthaina al-Rimi's home in the Attan neighbourhood of Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, was bombed and destroyed on 25 August. The blast killed her parents and six siblings. She was dug out from the rubble. A photographer snapped a picture of her trying to open one of her swollen and bruised eyes. The photo is being spread widely on social media as a symbol of a war that is being forgotten. A Yemeni blogger imitated opening one eye in a selfie in in Bouthaina's honor. Please do the same.
