More than 11,000 children are known to have been killed or maimed in Yemen's civil war since it escalated nearly eight years ago.
"The true toll of this conflict is likely to be far higher," said the children's agency UNICEF "Thousands of children have lost their lives, hundreds of thousands more remain at risk of death from preventable disease or starvation."
2.2 million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished, one-quarter of them aged under five, and most are at extreme risk from cholera, measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases, UNICEF said.
