UK is 'complicit' in starvation of children in Yemen

Andrew Mitchell, who used to be the UK's International Development Secretary, says the UK is "part of the problem" in Yemen.

Mr Mitchell told Radio 4's World at One that the UK was part of a Saudi coalition that was blockading Yemen and that tens of thousands of children were "being starved" by this blockade, in which the UK was "complicit".

He said that the UK should be "bending every sinew" to "broker a ceasefire" in the conflict.
