Yemen war: 12 million Yemenis could soon be on the brink of famine

Some 12 million Yemenis could soon be on the brink of famine if the security and economic situation in the war-ravaged country does not improve, the UN warned.

Yemen has been torn apart by more than three years of civil war. The conflict between the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthi rebels has left thousands dead.

The food crisis has deepened as communities are being displaced.

The UN has dubbed it world's worst humanitarian crisis.
