Yemen economy 'on verge of collapse'

Months of political upheaval threaten to cut basic services such as medical care, water and electricity by end of year.

    Months of political upheaval in Yemen have damaged an economy that was already struggling.

    The UN has warned the country could collapse if the new government is not operational soon. There is concern that essential services such as health, electricity, and water may come to a halt by the end of the year.
