UK cuts aid citing financial pressure from Covid

The UK government said it would provide “at least” £87m ($120m) this year, down from £214m last year.

Aid officials have condemned the cut. The UN chief, António Guterres, said reducing aid was a “death sentence”.

The situation in Yemen has been called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

In addition to conflict, Yemen has seen a collapse of its health system, leaving it incapable of coping with the coronavirus pandemic.
