Recent from South China Morning Post:
South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Malnourished three-month-old twins in Yemen among victims of ‘world’s worst famine in decades’” – below is their description.
Three-month-old Yemeni twins, Al-Hasan and AI-Hussein, are suffering from acute malnutrition and are among the more than 20 such cases admitted each day to the hospital where they are now being treated. Yemen is in “imminent danger of the worst famine the world has seen for decades”, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned on November 20, 2020. The Middle Eastern country has been caught up in a five-year war between Iran-allied Houthi rebels and government forces. The UN warning was issued as the US planned to label the Houthi rebels as “terrorists”. The move would limit the ability of other countries to interact with the rebels, who control the Yemeni capital and much of the north, and in turn hinder the delivery of aid in Yemen.

Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.
Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
