The UK is being attacked for cutting aid to Yemen. It will cut humanitarian aid by more than 50 per cent. Three weeks ago, The UK said Yemen was a "priority country". Yemen is one of the world's least developed countries. The UN reports that Yemen is the country with the most people in need of aid. There are about 24 million people who need help. This is about 85 per cent of its population. It ranks second worst in the Global Hunger Index.

There could be a humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Millions of people have no food. Famine could make the crisis worse. A refugee expert said: "We are seeing a...possible famine that the world hasn't seen since...the 1980s." The UN said: "More than 50,000 people are starving to death and 16 million will go hungry this year." It added that the UK cut in aid is very sad. A UK newspaper said: "Yemenis aren't starving, they are being starved."
