Three years of hell: Inside Yemen's civil war

It’s been three years since a Saudi-led coalition stepped into Yemen's civil war, and what have we got? Yemen is now on the brink of the world’s worst famine. It’s a stark contrast from the abstract game of political chess that is unfolding abroad: The Saudi crown prince is drumming up support in the US, France is blaming Iran for arming Yemen’s Houthi militia, and Iran is blaming Britain for arming the Saudi-led bombing campaign. Meanwhile, there is no headway in the UN peace efforts.
