Seven million in Yemen face threat of famine



The UN Security Council has been told that seven million people in Yemen are facing the threat of famine.

The body's humanitarian chief, Stephen O'Brien, says the crisis is entirely caused by the civil war. The UN is once again calling for Sanaa airport to be reopened to allow in aid and let Yemenis seek medical help.
