The United Nations recently called what’s happening in Yemen the “largest humanitarian crisis” in the world. You might not have heard about it, though. In recent months, journalists have largely been prevented from entering the country to report firsthand on the devastation.
But in May, FRONTLINE’s Martin Smith made it in. He and his team were the only foreign journalists given permission to enter the country at the time. What they saw unfolds in Inside Yemen, a documentary short that we’ve just released online: “People are not seeing what’s going on. We’re talking thousands of civilian dead,” Smith says.
