The United Nations is seeking to raise over four billion dollars at a pledging event today for war-torn Yemen where the humanitarian drive has seen funding dry up even before global attention turned to the crisis in Ukraine.

The UN says more than a million people in Yemen need food assistance and this could rise to nineteen million in the second half of the year.

According to its chief, Martin Griffiths, aid agencies were already forced to cut back or stop food, health and other vital assistance in Yemen where the economy and basic services had collapsed in the seven-year war.
