The UN chief further called for “immediate funding” to assist more than 16 million people in Yemen, where some two thirds of the population is in need of some form of aid to survive.

"Reducing aid is a death sentence for entire families."
This comes as the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) had already warned that more than 16 million people in Yemen would go hungry this year.
