The United Nations aid chief urged the Saudi-led military coalition that controls Yemen’s ports to expedite imports of food and fuel supplies, warning that a further 10 million Yemenis could face starvation by year-end, writes Reuters.
Yemenis in danger of starving to death may rise from 8.4 million today to 18.4 million by December, 2018. That’s three times the estimated death toll of Jews killed during the Holocaust, comments Whitney Webb at Mint Press.
