UN appears to fail Yemen's child victims by bowing to political power
"It appears that political power and diplomatic clout have been allowed to trump the UN's duty to expose those responsible for the killing and maiming of more than a thousand of Yemen's children. The decision to retract its findings is a moral failure and goes against everything the UN is meant to stand for.
"The killing of children in their homes, at schools and in hospitals should not be swept under the carpet. When the UN identifies crimes such as these it needs to act, regardless of who the perpetrators are."
Oxfam is delivering relief to people in the north and south of the country and has reached more than 860,000 people with water, food vouchers, hygiene kits and other essential aid.
