The Norwegian Refugee Council says millions of Yemenis are edging closer to famine and fatal disease one year after a Saudi-led coalition imposed a blockade on sea, land and air routes in the Arab world's poorest country.
Jan Egeland of the Norwegian Refugee Council said late Monday "the past 12 months have been a never-ending nightmare for Yemeni civilians."
The Saudi-led coalition has been at war with the Houthi rebels since March 2015 in a stalemated conflict that has generated the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
The charity says the war has left 12 million people at imminent risk of descending into famine.
