International humanitarian organizations are warning that millions of Yemenis face death by starvation because of the blockade of the war-ravaged country by the Saudi-led coalition. The United Nations says Yemen will face the largest famine the world has ever seen unless the blockade is ended and its borders are re-opened. VOA Diplomatic Correspondent Cindy Saine has reaction from the State Department, which says it is having conversations with the Saudis about allowing more aid for the Yemenis.
