U.N.: Yemen Sees 10,000+ New Cases of Cholera Every Week

HeadlineOct 04, 2018

In Yemen, the World Health Organization warns the world’s worst humanitarian crisis is growing more severe, with about 10,000 new cases of cholera appearing each week. The WHO says the water-borne disease is spreading rapidly since much of Yemen’s sanitation and medical infrastructure has been destroyed by a U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing campaign. In August, U.N. human rights experts accused the Saudi-led coalition of committing possible war crimes, including the bombing and shelling of schools, hospitals and markets.
