ICRC shocked by human suffering in Yemen 

22 April 2015

Nowhere is safe in Yemen, says Robert Mardini, the ICRC’s head of operations for the Near and Middle East, who is just back  from a three-day visit to the city of Sana’a.  Since violence escalated on 26 March, the city has suffered heavy damage, leaving people without food, water or electricity.  Even if air strikes end, the challenges and needs will be enormous, warns Mardini.
