People in Yemen go solar amid fuel shortages

Yemen has now become one of the largest importers of solar panels, providing some comfort for families devastated by years of fighting between Saudi-UAE coalition and Houthis.

    Millions of people have been displaced by the war in Yemen, now in its fifth year.

    Many live in camps or abandoned buildings, with no electricity or proper sanitation facilities.

    Fuel imports are restricted, or banned, making their hardship worse.

    Many people are now turning to solar power to try to ease their suffering.
