‘Up to 1,500 civil­ian ca­su­al­ties in war’

Yorkshire Post - - UK & ABROAD -

The United Nations’ refugee agency has said there have been nearly 1,500 civil­ian ca­su­al­ties in the coun­try from Au­gust through to Oc­to­ber, the lat­est grim tally to emerge from a four-year civil war, as op­pos­ing par­ties hold talks in Swe­den.

UNHCR urged the two sides to do more to pro­tect civil­ians, say­ing data from Ye­men shows an av­er­age of 123 civil­ian killed and wounded ev­ery week.
