This does not move Western correspondents in the Middle East

"Millions of people in Yemen are starving, including children who will be crippled for life, the UN has warned as new photographs from areas worst hit by the war show teenagers dying of hunger. Yemen now has one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) said yesterday. More than 14 million people are going hungry, half of them starving. At least ten of the country’s 21 governorates are close to a famine.  The lack of food in the gulf’s poorest state is largely the result of a bombing campaign and blockade" by US and its allies in the Gulf.
