Recent reporting by The New York Times has put a spotlight on Yemen, the scene of the world's worst humanitarian crisis due to an ongoing civil war. A starving little girl, captured in a devastating photograph by Times photojournalist Tyler Hicks, died last week amid calls for a cease-fire.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Times reporter Declan Walsh (@declanwalsh), who was with Hicks in Yemen.

This segment aired on November 5, 2018.
