Famine survey warns of thousands dying daily in Yemen if ports stay closed

2.5 million people in Yemen's crowded cities had no access to clean water
A U.S.-funded famine survey said Tuesday that thousands of Yemenis could die daily if a Saudi-led military coalition does not lift its blockade on the country's key ports.


The warning came a day after the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said 2.5 million people in Yemen's crowded cities had no access to clean water, raising the risk that a cholera epidemic will spread.
