Contaminated medication smuggled into war-torn Yemen has killed at least 10 children being treated for leukaemia in Sanaa, local authorities said.


“Ten children suffering from leukaemia have died” at the Kuwait Hospital, the Ansar Allah rebels’ health ministry said, adding they were among a group of 19 patients aged between three and 15.


It said “bacterial contamination” had been detected in the injections administered to the children, adding that the medication had been smuggled into the country.


Another child was in “highly critical condition”, it said.
