Published on 12 October 2011

The UN World Food Programme said Wednesday that more Yemenis were going hungry because of rising food prices and severe fuel shortages brought about by months of political unrest. "Rising food prices and political instability have left millions of people in Yemen hungry and vulnerable," WFP executive director Josette Sheeran said in an emailed statement.
