Over 80 per cent of the population in war-torn Yemen is in need of humanitarian aid and many are facing starvation, Oxfam has said.

The charity also warned of the likelihood of a financial crisis in the country, which could further worsen the already dire situation.

The war has killed over 6,000 people, around half of them civilians, and displaced a further 2.4 million.

Over 14 million Yemenis are hungry and 21.2 million – 82 per cent of the population – urgently need humanitarian assistance, according to Oxfam.

The conflict, escalated hugely by a Saudi-led bombing campaign, has caused significant problems for Yemen’s food supply, with rising prices and food becoming less available.

Importers to Yemen are finding it harder to get credit from international banks nervous about involving themselves with such a fragile market.
