The first ever pledging conference to try and prevent Yemen’s humanitarian crisis from sliding into famine, was hailed a “remarkable success” by the UN chief on Tuesday.

António Guterres said that the generosity and solidarity of contributors meant that US$1.1 billion had been promised, to help nearly 19 million in need throughout the country.
