Ten thousand Yemeni children have been killed or maimed since a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia intervened six years ago, according to UNICEF, the United Nations children's agency.

UNICEF says a staggering 15 million people, including 8.5 million children, don’t have access to safe water, sanitation or hygiene as the organisation says that 400,000 children suffer from acute malnutrition.
