Save the Children International CEO Helle Thorning-Schmidt said the “nutrition crisis… has serious implications” for the country’s young. “Millions of children don’t know when or if their next meal will come. In one hospital I visited in north Yemen, the babies were too weak to cry, their bodies exhausted by hunger. This could be any hospital in Yemen,” Thorning-Schmidt said.
But Germany has approved the delivery of military equipment to Saudi Arabia despite a commitment not to export arms to countries fighting in the war in Yemen.
