Yemen talks: Useful start or doomed to fail?

It’s nearly three months now since a Saudi-led alliance began airstrikes in Yemen.

The stated objective was to drive back the advance of Houthi rebels and bring about some sort of dialogue.

And while there have been talks, they have come to nothing, with the latest UN-backed efforts in Geneva collapsing with no sign of any agreement or truce.

The UN believes that some 21 million people, or 80 percent of Yemen’s population, are now in need of humanitarian assistance.

So with dialogue and donations failing, and hopes for a ceasefire slim, who is looking out for Yemen’s civilians?
