Special report: Yemen's children are starving

Special report: Yemen's children are starving



WARNING: This report contains images of malnourished children

Sky’s Alex Rossi travelled to Yemen, where the war is intensifying between the Saudi-led coalition and Houthi rebels.

Saudi Arabia leads a thirteen nation coalition trying to support the government of Yemen against Iranian backed Houthi rebels.

It is nearly four years since the coalition entered the war in Yemen and civilians have begun to flee the port city of Hodeida.

Countless children are dying from lack of food and healthcare.

Sky News met eight-year-old Anissa, who hadn’t eaten properly for over two years.

Medical staff say she weighs just over 10kg – half the average weight of someone her age.

The UN says more than 22 million people – 75% of the population – are in need of humanitarian assistance.
