Yemen: Britain's Forgotten War

Channel 4


Go to About Section

Krishnan Guru-Murthy, director Paddy Wells and producer Mais Abdullah gain rare access to war-torn Yemen. In a powerful and moving film, Guru-Murthy discovers bombing by the Saudi-led coalition is contributing to a humanitarian crisis; the UN estimates almost 400,000 children are severely malnourished.

About 90 per cent of Yemen's food is imported and ports and warehouses have been targeted. The coalition uses British-supplied weapons, as well as weapons from the USA and France.
