Millions of children facing starvation in Yemen warns United Nations – BBC News
There’s a stark warning tonight that millions of children in Yemen could be pushed to “the brink of starvation” unless international aid is dramatically stepped up. It comes from UNICEF, the United Nations children’s organisation.
Yemen faces the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, with the coronavirus pandemic compounding the effect of five years of civil war.
Houthi rebels backed by Iran have been fighting Yemen’s government. It is backed by a Saudi-led coalition which is supported by the US and the UK.
2 million of Yemen’s children are malnourished, and 1.7 million have been forced to flee their homes. A child dies every 10 minutes from a preventable disease.
