Picture of Saudi banknotes found in pockets of killed mercenary makes rounds in Yemen

Activists have circulated a picture of 500 Saudi riyals found inside the pockets of a dead Al-Amaliqa Brigade mercenary who died during the fighting in Shabwah, southern Yemen.

The activists said the money was the soldier’s salary, showing a picture of the banknote mixed with blood.

Activists have reacted extensively to the image, which they said sums up the curse of war, and how Saudi-led coalition keeps bribing Yemeni youth for a paltry sum and plunging them into absurd battles
