Yemen conflict: A million more children face famine

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45568669

A further one million children are at risk of famine in Yemen, Save the Children has warned.

Rising food prices and the falling value of the Yemeni currency as a result of the conflict are putting more families at risk of food insecurity.

But another threat comes from fighting around the key port city of Hudaydah, which is the entry point for most aid to the country’s rebel-held areas.

The charity says a total of 5.2 million children in Yemen now face famine.

Fears also remain of potential damage to or a blockade of Hudaydah’s port as a result of the fighting.

The basic supplies that pass through it are needed to prevent famine and a recurrence of a cholera epidemic that affected a million people last year.
