ABC News: ‘Forgotten War’ in Yemen has the country on the verge of man-made famine
“The deadly conflict in Yemen, which has been raging for the last three years with no signs of letting up, is being called the ‘Forgotten War’ because most of the world’s attention has been focused on Syria. A bombing campaign by Saudi Arabia and its allies against Shia rebels has left around 2.2 million Yemeni children malnourished — 80 percent of them severely — and the country is on the verge of a man-made famine…” The news outlet also features a video report from Nightline on the situation in Yemen (McGarry, 3/27).
