    The International Committee of the Red Cross has raised an alarm over Yemen's challenges in the health sector.

    Peter Maurer, the charity's president, said the overall situation in Yemen was "very dire, and very catastrophic".

    The two-year war has resulted in the world's worst-ever cholera epidemic, and hospitals are unable to keep up.

    According to the United Nations, nearly two million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Doha.
