In Yemen, the United Nations said Monday that the number of people killed by fighting in Yemen has topped 10,000, as the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition continues a naval blockade and bombing campaign targeting Houthi rebels. The U.N. reports another 40,000 have been injured in the war, with growing levels of malnutrition. Yemen’s top U.N. humanitarian official also warned of food insecurity, saying up to 10 million people need urgent assistance.
