UN Urges Yemen Ceasefire, Says 233,000 Killed in Six-Year War

Six years into the Saudi-led invasion of Yemen, the UN is reporting that 233,000 people have been killed, calling this unacceptable and demanding both sides work on an immediate ceasefire to the conflict.

Though a lot of people have been killed directly in the war, UN figures show the majority of the deaths were from “indirect causes,” which is to say lack of food and medicine, diseases and lack of other general infrastructure.

That’s not a surprise. The UN’s own tracking of food insecurity shows the country going from bad to worse, and the absolute worst part, the populous northwest, is simply “not analysed” because things are so bad they can’t really function.
