    The UN's emergency relief coordinator has arrived in Yemen's capital, Sanaa, to see the deteriorating humanitarian crisis for himself.

    The war in Yemen has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis and injured 40,000 more.

    The war-torn country is now close to a famine and is facing a cholera outbreak that's caused more than two thousand deaths. The UN estimates that around 80 percent of the population is in need of humanitarian aid.

    Al Jazeera's Victoria Gatenby reports.
