    > War-ravaged Yemen is on course to become the world's poorest country if the conflict persists, the United Nations said in a report.

    > "If fighting continues through 2022, Yemen will rank the poorest country in the world, with 79 percent of the population living under the poverty line and 65 percent classified as extremely poor," according to the United Nations Development Programme report, published on Wednesday.

    > "The ongoing crisis is threating to make Yemen's population the poorest in the world – a title the already suffering country cannot afford.”
