    Over the past four years, the civil war in Yemen has claimed at least 10,000 lives, with experts estimating a much higher toll. The fighting, stoked by tribal conflicts and backed (on opposite sides) by Saudi Arabia and Iran, has pushed the country to the brink of famine, generating the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

    The executive director of the U.N.'s World Food Program, David Beasley, said Tuesday, December 4, 2018, that more that 12 million people suffer from "severe hunger."
