Although family members of Mohammed Saleh Qayed Taeiman call him a normal sixth grader who was eager to have fun, the US military in January unleashed a deadly drone strike that killed the “al-Qaeda militant” along with two others. Taeiman’s father and brother were in 2012 similarly killed by US strikes, and another brother was wounded in a different attack, dealing multiple blows to the family even before the death of the young boy. With this in mind, RT’s Ben Swann and Reema Abu Hamdieh speak in an exclusive interview with Mohammed’s cousin, Hussein Taeiman.

RT’s Manila Chan takes a look.
