As Ramadan begins, the United Nations has renewed efforts to strengthen peace talks between Yemen's warring factions. But a broken ceasefire has dashed most hopes for an end to hostilities.
The Saudi-led air campaign to restore the former Yemeni government is more than a year old, but the front lines of the civil war have barely moved. Instead, the most noticeable results of the conflict are the humanitarian disaster that has unfolded: 2.5 million Yemenis are internally displaced, and more than 7.5 million are severely food insecure, according to UNICEF.
The British Red Cross has said it fears a famine in Yemen like the one that drew world attention in the 1980s in Ethiopia.
Will Ramadan further ease the fighting and open the door for a more lasting peace? And what compromises would that require?
