Yemen on brink of starvation as food supplies run out fast

 

 

Men, women and children in Yemen are at risk of "catastrophic hunger" as the conflict between a Saudi Arabian led coalition and the Yemeni government continues.

Mass unemployment, rising food prices and a drop in exports means people in Yemen could run out of food fast, international charity Oxfam has warned.

"Yemen was already the poorest country in the Middle East with high rates of malnutrition before the Saudi oppression that began 20 months ago," Maya Mailer, head of humanitarian policy at Oxfam told Sputnik.

According to the United Nations, malnutrition is on the increase with more than half of the population of Yemen left without access to a reliable source of food or fuel.
