Pestilence

WHO reports more than 100,000 cholera cases in Yemen - UPI.com
UPI reports: "The World Health Organization reports the number of suspected cholera cases in Yemen has surpassed 101,800 -- doubling in just more than a week. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, or OCHA, Yemen is in the grips of a severe cholera epidemic 'of an unprecedented scale.' The outbreak was first reported in October and cholera has since been identified in 19 governorates, or territories. On May 30, the United Nations Children's Fund, or UNICEF, said about 53,000 cases have been identified."

Comment: Pestilence often follows war and this is a good and sad example of that relationship.
