In news from the Middle East, the International Committee of the Red Cross is reporting the number of suspected cholera cases in Yemen has reached 1 million, making it the worst cholera epidemic on record. At least 2,200 people have already died from the outbreak, which began in April amid the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing campaign, which began just over 1,000 days ago. According to the Red Cross, more than 80 percent of Yemenis now lack food, fuel, water and access to healthcare.
