‘Unthinkable ... after Ethiopia’: Yemen faces globe’s worst famine in 100 years
Worst place on Earth to be a child?
The United Nations humanitarian branch is warning that 13 million people in civil-war-torn Yemen are facing starvation.
UN advocates are calling on a military coalition led by U.S. ally Saudi Arabia to halt air strikes that are at times missing targets and killing civilians, while decimating villages. The action is contributing to what the UN says could become “the worst famine in the world in 100 years.” Disease, including the diphtheria that this young Yemeni girl suffers from (eradicated by immunization in much of the West), is another challenge for humanitarian efforts.
