Yemen hunger crisis: Refugee chief ‘shocked to the bones’

About 19 million people in Yemen [total population:  ~ 27 million] are in need of some form of aid, says the UN, as the price of basic commodities rise by a third.

The UN secretary general has warned that Yemen is facing a “tragedy of immense proportions,” with a child under five perishing of preventable causes every 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, Saudi forces reportedly threaten to attack the port of Hodeida, the last remaining humanitarian lifeline, as Trump works to “push through contracts for tens of billions of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia.”

“I am shocked to my bones by what I have seen and heard here in war- and hunger- stricken Yemen. The world is letting some 7 million men, women and children slowly but surely, be engulfed by unprecedented famine. It is not a drought that is at fault. This preventable catastrophe is man-made from A to Z,” said Jan Egeland, Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council.
