As Saudi-coalition expands Yemen war, UN says famine accelerating

UNICEF says 400,000 children are at risk of dying every day due to lack of food, but the war is making aid deliveries impossible.

    Warning: This report contains some disturbing images.

    The UN Children's Fund is calling on the Saudi-led coalition and Houthi rebels in Yemen to allow aid deliveries to reach starving people.

    The director of UNICEF says 400,000 children are at risk of dying due to lack of food, 40 percent of whom live around Hodeidah.

    But instead of humanitarian supplies, more troops are arriving with the Saudi-UAE coalition's new offensives to take the vital port city.
