According to the UN, Yemen is going through the world’s worst food security crisis, with two-thirds of the population – more than 18 million people – in need of food aid. Over the course of four years of war between Houthi rebels and a Saudi-led coalition backing Yemen’s President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, an estimated 85,000 children under the age of five may have starved to death.

Who should be held responsible for the thousands of Yemenis who have died from starvation? And to what degree is there apathy from the international community about the conflict? In this episode, we hear the latest on the humanitarian crisis, speak to experts about mass starvation as a possible war crime and ask whether the world is desensitised to hunger.
