Severe malnutrition and other chronic diseases as a result of the shortage of medicines, are not the only reason behind the high mortality rate among children.

There’s also the war. At least five civilians, including two children, have been killed in Yemen, in an air strike by the Saudi-UAE coalition.

The attack targeted a moving vehicle in the north-western province of Saada on Tuesday.
