FEARS OF WORSENING YEMEN VIOLENCE RISE AS UN PEACE TALKS PUSHED BACK
Bethan McKernan Middle East correspondent – Nov 9, 2018
Chances of famine exacerbated by escalating fighting between Houthi rebels and Saudi-led coalition
Peace talks aimed at ending Yemen’s war have been pushed back to the end of the year, sparking fears that intense violence in Hodeidah will worsen and the country will be plunged into famine as the Saudi-backed coalition seeks to completely retake the vital port city.
Fighting in Houthi rebel-controlled Hodeidah has flared in the past week as militias loyal to the Yemeni government attempt to break the current stalemate before the end of November, when the US and UN had called for a ceasefire.
More than 200 coalition airstrikes have hit civilian neighbourhoods and at least 150 people have died after stepping on Houthi landmines or being caught in artillery fire, aid workers said.

FOOD RUINED BY DROUGHT COULD FEED MORE THAN 80m A DAY, SAYS WORLD BANK
Bank calls for water to be treated as valuable resource as study into impact details lack of water’s devastating lifelong scars on children. The food produce destroyed by droughts would be enough to feed a country with a population the size of Germany’s every day for a year, the World Bank has reported. In a new study, it said, the “shockingly large and often hidden” consequences of prolonged periods without rain threatened to stunt the growth of children and condemn them to a lifetime of poverty.
The report said the lost food production related to drought would feed more than 80 million people every day for a year, adding that while floods and storm surges had an immediate impact, droughts were “misery in slow motion”. The World Bank said women that were born in droughts bore the marks for their entire lives, growing up mentally and physically stunted, undernourished and unwell.
