Nasser Arrabyee comes back on the show with the latest on the U.S.-backed Suadi war in Yemen. He explains that although the ceasefire in Hodeidah has been going on over a month, negotiations have otherwise stalled. The sides were supposed to swap prisoners last week for example, but now the deadline for the trade has come and gone. Because of the lack of reliable data, Arrabyee and his colleagues have put together their own casualty figures, estimating that 100,000 civilians have been killed and injured, which does not include starvation and deprivation. The UN still pegs the civilian casualties at 5,000.
