The situation has “never been worse” in Yemen: UNICEF

"Time is running out" to avoid a famine in Yemen and children will be hit the hardest, an expert from the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) has said.

Dr Sherin Varkey, UNICEF Deputy Representative in Yemen says US $236 million is needed to deliver essential life-saving aid.

The conflict in Yemen enters its third year this week and has left nearly 19 million Yemenis in dire need of assistance.

Reem Abaza spoke to Dr Varkey about the situation.
