Yemen is heading towards large-scale starvation and could face the world’s worst famine in decades.
The UN’s warning comes as malnutrition rates hit record highs after years of conflict.
The world body estimates more than 16 million Yemenis could go hungry this year.
Children are particularly affected with 400,000 at risk of severe malnutrition.
The UN has appealed for $3.8 billion to avert a catastrophe.
But it says it only got half of what’s needed last year and millions of people have not received food.
So, who will step in to help the people of Yemen?
Presenter: Peter Dobbie
Riona Judge McCormack – Spokeswoman for Norwegian Refugee Council.
