〔★は大沼〕◎コモンドリームズ : With Weapons Pouring In and Aid Locked Out, Yemeni Civilians 'Willfully Abandoned'
 (10日付け) ⇒ http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/04/10/weapons-pouring-and-aid-locked-out-yemeni-civilians-willfully-abandoned
 
 ・ Two weeks of a Saudi Arabia-led bombardment and siege on the impoverished nation of Yemen has bred a profound humanitarian crisis—marked by hundreds of civilian deaths and worsening food and water shortages.

 As the Saudi-led coalition blocks almost all food and medical aid from getting in, while bombing public infrastructure, residents and aid organizations warn that the worst is yet to come.

 "So many of my family members are saying that if the war is not going to kill you, it's the humanitarian crisis that will," Rooj Alwazir, Yemeni activist currently based in Washington, D.C. and co-founder of Support Yemen Media, told the Shay wa Nana Radio Show, which aired Wednesday.

 The war, which is led by Saudi Arabia and now includes the United States, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, and Morocco, is being waged against one of the poorest countries in the world.

 The United Nations estimates that 16 million out of 25 million people in Yemen were in need of humanitarian assistance before the fighting began. Yemen relies on imports for 90 percent of staple food items, including 100 percent of rice.

 ・ UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told reporters on Thursday that civilians in Yemen are being "willfully abandoned." He charged, "Ordinary Yemeni families are struggling for the very basics—water, food, fuel and medicine. Hundreds of civilians have been killed. Hospitals and schools are shutting down—some of which are direct targets of the fighting."
