Mafraj Radio Episode 15: UK Strategy, and Reprieve on Multiple Kills

On this episode we speak with Sir Alan Duncan, the British government’s Special Envoy to Yemen, about UK foreign policy and his thoughts on Yemen’s precarious transition. We also talk to Jennifer Gibson, a staff attorney for the London-based NGO Reprieve. Her recently-published report reveals damning details about the American targeted killing program. Sir Alan Duncan is the United Kingdom's Special Envoy to Yemen and Special Envoy to Oman. He has served as a Member of Parliament since 1992.

Jennifer Gibson is a staff attorney at the NGO Reprieve, where she leads the organization's program on issues related to US drone strikes in Pakistan. She tweets at @jennifermgibson.

I close this episode with a brief segment on the tragic death of American photojournalist Luke Somers. The segment is a condensed version of a recent blog post.
