Yemen - the suffering continues

 UNICEF, the UN children's fund, said the number of malnourished children in the country could reach 2.4 million - a 20 percent increase - by the end of the year. 

 9.58 million children do not have sufficient access to safe water, sanitation or hygiene, putting them at a greater risk of infection.

7.8 million do not have access to education amid the school closures.

 80 percent of the country is in need of humanitarian assistance. The coronavirus pandemic has only exacerbated the situation
