As civil war rages, UN calls Yemen world's worst humanitarian crisis
Civil war has been raging in Yemen since 2014. Jean-Nicolas Beuze, UNHCR Representative for Yemen, warns there is "no end in sight and the humanitarian situation is deteriorating very rapidly." Over a quarter of a million people have been killed, millions displaced, in what the UN calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis. Mr. Beuze describes the current situation as extremely dire where "two-thirds of the population rely on humanitarian aid from agencies like the UNHCR for their daily survival."
