Yemen War Death Toll Crosses 7,000

Yemen's 20-month war has killed more than 7,000 people and wounded nearly 37,000, the World Health Organization said, as the UN envoy voiced alarm over the worsening humanitarian situation.
"More than 7,070 people have been killed and over 36,818 injured" as of October 25, the WHO said in a statement, AFP reported.
Another 21 million people are in need of urgent health services, the UN health agency said.
Speaking to reporters at the airport of the capital Sana'a on Monday, UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said the situation cannot continue.
"People are dying ... the infrastructure is falling apart ... and the economy is on the brink of abyss," he said.
Yemen has been rocked by fighting between the fighters of the ruling Houthi Movement and forces supported by a Saudi-led coalition since March 2015 to reinstate the fugitive president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
The UN envoy urged the coalition controlling Yemen's airspace to allow commercial flights into and out of Sana'a's international airport to evacuate the wounded.
