Why this tournament?
The UN says more than 7,270 people - mostly civilians - have been killed and 38,280 others injured since the conflict began. Yemen has been plagued by years of instability, poor governance, lack of rule of law, under-development, environmental decline and widespread poverty. As of November 2016, an estimated 18.8 million people - 69% of Yemen's population - needed some kind of humanitarian or protection assistance, according to the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). That includes 10.3 million in acute need, who urgently require immediate, life-saving assistance in at least one sector.
