Yemen is under a real threat of death and destruction as a result of Saudi airstrikes, but Western media do not care about the fate of millions of Yemenis, says a commentator.

“There is just a series of double standards in the Western media in particular over Yemen,” because they refuse to reflect the real situation in the war-stricken country, William Spring told Press TV on Thursday.

“Yemen is not being mentioned by Sky News or BBC very much” and “there is a terrible lack of objectivity in reporting by BBC and [the] Sky” News, when it comes to the Saudi crimes against the Yemeni people, the human rights activist noted.

To discuss the horrible situation in Yemen, the UN humanitarian coordinator in the Arab country, Jamie McGoldrick, said Thursday that 68 Yemeni civilians had been killed in two separate airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition on Tuesday.
