Escalating violence in Yemen has forced thousands to flee the country in search of safety, according to the World Food Programme (WFP).

The UN agency says many people are crossing the Red Sea to the Horn of Africa country, Djibouti.

Meanwhile, the impact of the conflict on one of the poorest countries in the Arab world has left many Yemenis hungry.

Julian Franks reports on how WFP is doubling up its efforts to respond to the crisis.
