CWN Editor's Note: With the headline “Question of survival,” L’Osservatore Romano devoted its most prominent front-page coverage on July 7 to the cease-fire in the Yemeni Civil War.

The war “has caused one of the worst humanitarian crises of our times,” Pope Francis said on June 5. “Please, let us not forget to spare a thought for the children of Yemen: hunger, destruction, lack of education, lack of everything. Let us think of the children!”
