UN Warns of Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

Military operations in Yemen are escalating and the humanitarian and economic situation is rapidly deteriorating in the Arab world’s poorest nation, which is on the brink of famine, according to the U.N. special envoy for Yemen. Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed urged the UN Security Council to pressure Yemen’s government and Shiite Houthi rebels “to engage constructively” on political and security measures that he presented to them aimed at ending the war and creating a transitional government.
