As the war shows no signs of abating and pushes millions to the brink of famine, a pediatrician tries to save Yemen's starving children so that at least they may survive — a heartbreaking endeavor.
The five-day-old battle has claimed the lives of at least 139 fighters, while a UN envoy seeks to end the fighting. The port at Hodeida is considered a lifeline for millions of Yemenis facing starvation.
Covering a war is never easy, but in Yemen local journalists are being displaced internally and externally as a result of the ongoing conflict. As Gouri Sharma reports, hundreds of journalists have left out of fear.
A coalition of mostly Gulf countries led by Saudi Arabia has launched an attack to recapture a Yemeni port city from Houthi rebels, who receive backing from Iran. The journalist and activist Afrah Nasser fears the worst.
Children will be among the most hard-hit by the Saudi-led assault on Hodeida, says Nadine Drummond, spokesperson for Save the Children in Yemen. She spoke to DW about the dire humanitarian conditions in the country.
