UN Calls on US to Reverse Labelling Yemen’s Houthi Rebels as ‘Terrorists’

United Nations, United States, Jan 14 (AFP/APP): The United States must cancel its decision to classify Yemen’s Huthi rebels as “terrorists” to avoid the risk of a famine not seen for decades, a senior United Nations official told the Security Council on Thursday.

“What is the likely humanitarian impact? The answer is a large-scale famine on a scale that we have not seen for nearly 40 years,” said Mark Lowcock, the UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs. “Would licences and exemptions for aid agencies prevent that? The answer is no. What would prevent it? A reversal of the decision.”
