Yemeni boys one holding a hawk and another a hunting riffle wait to perform to make money on the outskirts of Sanaa, Yemen, Thursday, Nov. 11, 2010. More than 50 percent of Yemen's children are malnourished, rivalling war zones like Sudan's Darfur and parts of sub-Saharan Africa. That's just one of the worrying statistics in Yemen. Nearly half the population lives below the poverty line of $2 a day and doesn't have access to proper sanitation. Less than a tenth of the roads are paved. Water is running out. Tens of thousands have been displaced from their homes by conflict, flooding into cities. The government is riddled with corruption, has little control outside the capital, and its main source of income _ oil _ could run dry in a decade. less
