Starvation fueled by US-UK-Saudi war has forced Yemenis to eat food from garbage dumps

"Starvation and poverty provoked by the civil war in Yemen is so desperate that the country’s poorest are turning to rubbish for food." "The United Nations estimates 370,000 children are at risk of starvation and two million are out of school due to the war." "A Yemeni woman who campaigned for female literacy was shot dead in an assassination attempt last month amid the war. The Saudi Arabian government, which buys weapons from Britain, has faced an onslaught of criticism for fighting a “proxy” war against the rebels in Yemen."
