Yemen: Thousands lack treatment as cholera kills ‘one person per hour’
A cholera outbreak in war-torn Yemen is a threat to millions living in desperate conditions. More than 100,000 people have fallen ill in the past month.

Two years of war is already putting a huge strain on hospitals, and thousands of cholera victims can not get treatment.

The international charity group Oxfam says the disease is killing one person an hour.
