Yemen faces worsening threat of famine
« on: September 22, 2018, 02:54:59 PM »
International aid agencies are losing the fight against famine in Yemen, where 3.5 million people may soon be added to the eight million Yemenis already facing starvation, the UN aid chief warned Friday.

A sharp drop in the value of Yemen’s currency that has sent fuel prices spiraling compounded with renewed fighting has led to a worsening of what the United Nations already considers the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

“We are losing the fight against famine,” Mark Low cock, the under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs, told the Security Council.
