Yemen

Niyi Oyedeji and Sahar Mohammed
Soaring prices of food in Yemen and Nigeria are predisposing more households to malnutrition as both countries face insurgency and weak local currency.

Confronted with war, devastation and armed groups that rule in the name of religion, more and more young Yemenis are turning towards atheism.

Sahar Mohamad
