Yemen: 'I wanted to fly and escape bombing'

President Obama has cancelled some arms sales to Saudi Arabia because of the Saudis' conduct in the war in Yemen.

His administration said it was concerned over "flaws" in the way air strikes are targeted in Yemen.

In October, more than 140 people were killed in a strike on a funeral in the country.

BBC Arabic's Nawal al-Maghafi reports from Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

You can watch the Our World documentary The Funeral Bombing at 21:30 on Saturday and Sunday on the BBC News Channel, on BBC World at these times and on the BBC iPlayer.
