A UN-led donor conference taking place in Geneva is hoping to raise up to three billion dollars to help people in war-torn Yemen. The three-year conflict has left 22 million people in need of humanitarian help.
The warring parties in Yemen have agreed to take part in talks aimed at ending their three-year conflict. The world's worst humanitarian crisis has millions facing famine in the region's poorest state.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called on the warring factions in Yemen to engage in peace talks. Recent clashes in the port city of Hodeida have exacerbated the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
A "window" has opened for a deal to end hostilities in Yemen, Britain's Foreign Office has said. The conflict has killed at least 10,000 people and has become a "living hell" for children suffering from malnutrition.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said UN-led negotiations to end the civil war should begin next month. The nearly four-year-old conflict has claimed over 10,000 lives and pushed millions to the brink of starvation.
