Nearly 400 children have been killed in Yemen since violence escalated in March, according to a report released on Wednesday by the UN children’s agency, UNICEF.
Fighting between government forces and rebel groups has created what the UN has described as one of the world’s most pressing humanitarian emergencies.
Some 21 million people in Yemen—roughly 80 per cent of the population—are in need of aid relief.
UNICEF says the conflict is “a particular tragedy” for children.
To find out why, Daniel Johnson spoke to Simon Ingram, UNICEF spokesperson in Amman, Jordan.
