From Middle East Eye:

Activist and humanitarian Riham al-Badr was killed by a Houthi sniper in her home city Taiz. It was reported that she was delivering aid when she was killed. Her brother was killed last year.

Yemen’s prime minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr offered his condolences on Twitter.

“My deep condolences to the family of the martyr and the human rights activist, who is a member of the monitoring team at the National Committee for the Investigation of Human Rights Violations, Reham Badr, who was shot dead by the Houthi militia while observing violations that affect the residential neighborhoods in the city of Taiz, may she rest in peace,” he wrote.

Two videos: The first is a brief introduction to Reham Badr and has English captions. The second video I found while looking for video of this news, but it’s not in English (could not find an English one). There are a couple interviews, but I think the heartbroken tears need no translating. The second video also shows her after she had been killed and the image is not blurred, in case that bothers anyone.
