Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “UN warns of Yemen ‘death sentence’ as donor pledges fall short” – below is their description.

The United Nations secretary-general has said he was disappointed by the outcome of a global donor conference for Yemen.

Antonio Guterres said the event raised roughly $1.7bn – that is less than half of the $3.85bn the UN was seeking.

While big donors gave money in most cases, they actually reduced their contributions from the year before.

Al Jazeera’s James Bays reports from UN headquarters in New York.
