A humanitarian crisis is rapidly deepening in Yemen, where millions of aid-reliant people have been cut off from assistance since Saudi Arabia closed the country’s ports on Nov. 5.

Riyadh eased the blockade slightly following international outrage, but humanitarian officials say it’s not enough.

Three UN agencies warned Thursday that “the lives of millions” were at risk if aid is not immediately let in.

According to Save the Children, 130 children are dying every day.

“Together, we issue another urgent appeal for the coalition to permit entry of lifesaving supplies to Yemen in response to what is now the worst humanitarian crisis in the world,” reads a joint statement from the heads of the World Food Program, Unicef and the World Health Organization. time.com
No one will ever know what went through the mind of Afghan Police Lt. Sayed Basam Pacha in those moments when he came face to face with a man he suspected of being a suicide bomber on Thursday afternoon, but whatever it was, he did not hesitate to act.

At his back was a crowd of civilians, many of them dignitaries, leaving the hall he was guarding.

Around him were officers from the police company he commanded.

The suspect had just approached their heavily guarded gate, the only way in or out of the compound around the hall.

Broad-shouldered and heavily muscled, Lieutenant Pacha shouted at the suspect to halt, but instead the man started running.

The officer stopped him, throwing his arms around him in a bear hug. nytimes.com
