FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Yemen’s uprising, 10 years on: Half the population risks starvation” – below is their description.
January 27 sees #Yemen mark the 10th #anniversary of an #uprising that called for change; for an end to inequality, poverty and corruption. But today, up to 16 million people in Yemen are on the brink of #famine. The economy is destroyed, as are schools and hospitals across the country. Jon Cunliffe, the Regional Operations Director for the Middle East at Action Against Hunger, gives us his perspective, telling us that commercial traffic has to be allowed to enter Yemen again and that sanctions on the Houthi rebels must remain suspended.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
