The suffering of millions of children across Yemen has become "invisible to the rest of the world" according to UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) representative in the war-ravaged country.

Merixtell RelaAo said the impact of the fighting between coalition-backed government forces and so-called Houthi rebels, on children and families, has been "catastrophic".

The conflict has fuelled what UN agencies are calling the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with 6.8 million on the brink of famine.

Ms RelaAo spoke ahead of a High-Level pledging conference next Tuesday, which it's hoped will provide lifesaving emergency relief.

The event is being organized by the UN together with the governments of Sweden and Switzerland in Geneva.

On the line from Yemen, the UNICEF representative explained the scale of the crisis to Mustafa Al Gamal.
