THE SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on the road with host Patrick Henningsen on location in Beirut, Lebanon, covering the top news stories internationally. In the first hour we'll hear updates on events in the US and the Middle East, as well as a situation report on the war in Yemen. Halfway through the first hour we'll be joined in-studio by a special guest, cultural commentator and geopolitical analyst Dr. Radwan Rizk to discuss the deep history of this region and how it is still influencing present day conflicts here, as well as in Syria and Yemen. Later on we’ll also cover this week's SHOUT! Poll and put the next big question out to our listeners. In the third hour we’re joined by international human rights lawyer Mohammed Al Wazir from Arabian Rights Watch Association to talk about the Forgotten War in Yemen and the use of cluster bombs and other WMDs as the one year anniversary of that war passes this week.
SHOUT! POLL: Is Saudi Arabia guilty of war crimes in Yemen? VOTE HERE.
