sanaa - Many tens of thousands of young children have died in recent years in Yemen from the effects of severe malnutrition. This is the conclusion of the children's rights organization Save the Children, who has to make great efforts to get aid goods in the right place in the conflict-torn country.
Yemen has been in the grip of a bloody civil war for years. An international coalition headed by Saudi Arabia and local allies are fighting against Houthi insurgents. They have largely overrun the northwest of the country and are among other things the boss in capital Sanaa. The Saudis think that the Houthi's get support from arch-rival Iran.
