Situation in Yemen looks like apocalypse: UN


The United Nations has warned that Yemen could become the world’s worst humanitarian disaster in half a century as the war-torn country is grappling with deadly cholera and diphtheria outbreaks amid a devastating Saudi war.

"The situation in Yemen - today, right now, to the population of the country - looks like the apocalypse," Mark Lowcock, the UN's undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, told media.

Lowcock said the "cholera outbreak is probably the worst the world has ever seen, with a million suspected cases until the end of 2017."

The UN official also expressed concern over "a terrible new epidemic" of diphtheria, which has killed scores of people and affected up to 500 others over the past few weeks.
