After the Saudi-led coalition blockade, Yemen faces “the world's worst humanitarian crisis. Some seven million people are on the brink of famine”, the UN warns.
France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK will face court action if they don't set out plans to cut NO2 emissions.NO2 caused almost 70,000 premature deaths in Europe in 2013.
