For many the war in Yemen has become a story of numbers. At least 10,000 people killed, two million displaced from their homes, and millions more on the brink of famine.

Now, 1,000 days since the start of the conflict, Houthi rebels say they launched a ballistic missile targeting a royal palace in the Saudi capital Riyadh - arguably their strongest display of defiance yet.

The power struggle between the Houthis, a Shia rebel group, and President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who is backed by a Saudi-led coalition, has turned into a regional confrontation.

And as always, it is civilians who are suffering the most.

So what has been achieved in the 1,000 days since the conflict began?
