CIVIL­IAN CA­SU­AL­TIES IN YE­MEN AV­ER­AGE 123 PER WEEK, SAYS UNHCR

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - - World -

The United Na­tions’ refugee agency says there have been nearly 1,500 civil­ian ca­su­al­ties in Ye­men from Au­gust through Oc­to­ber. The three­month tally, which in­cludes both killed and wounded, is the lat­est toll from a four-year civil war that has killed at least 16,000 civil­ians. UNHCR urged the war­ring par­ties in a state­ment re­leased on Fri­day to do more to pro­tect civil­ians, say­ing data from Ye­men shows an av­er­age of 123 civil­ian deaths and in­juries ev­ery week dur­ing the pe­riod.
