JAFARIYA, Yemen
The Wider Image: Living on a mountaintop
In villages perched high on a mountain in Western Yemen, residents are a safe distance from a conflict raging throughout most of the country but have had to turn the clock back on their lifestyles by centuries. Eighteen months of civil war and shortages have deprived Yemen's 28 million people of electricity and fuel - dinner is cooked on an open fire and dawn light heralds a the start of work in the fields. But far from a country idyll, starvation and a lack of vital medicine have turned sunny days in the crisp green hills into a medieval struggle for survival. People in the Jafariya district of the western Raymah province must now haul basic goods uphill by foot, donkey and even a pulley-powered cable car soaring between peaks.
