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.
War, famine and poverty are devastating Yemen. Millions of people are in dire need of food and medical supplies. Among the worst-affected are young mothers and their kids. Gouri Sharma and Mohamed Hussein report.
Fourteen million people are facing "an imminent and great big famine," said a top UN aid official. Yemen has been described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis due to a proxy war fueled by a regional rivalry.
