Yemen Humanitarian Crisis [Infographic]
World  - Saudi Arabia has intensified its blockade of Yemen, closing down all traffic to Yemen's air and seaports and shutting land crossings, stopping all United Nations delivery of humanitarian aid.

Aid agencies have reacted with dismay and anger to the Saudi closures. The UN and the Red Cross said a "catastrophic" situation threatened millions who rely on life-saving aid. The Red Cross said its shipment of chlorine tablets, vital to combating a cholera epidemic which has affected more than 900,000 people, had been blocked. The UN says seven million Yemenis are on the brink of famine.
