Nowhere Safe for Yemen's Children: The deadly impact of explosive weapons in Yemen

Before March 2015, life for children in Yemen was not without challenges: nearly half of young children suffered from stunting or chronic malnutrition. Many children were at risk of abuse, exploitation and violence from, for example, child marriage, recruitment and use by armed forces or groups, and child labour. However, as a result of the escalation in the armed conflict, Yemeni children are now facing new and unprecedented threats to their survival.

This publication details the impact of the use of explosive weapons on the lives of children in Yemen. Save the Children calls for a political resolution to the conflict and, in the interim, an immediate end to the use of explosive weapons with wide-area effect in populated areas.
