About the speaker:
Award winning BBC Correspondent Nawal Al-Maghafi has been reporting on the Middle East since 2012. Over the past three years, she has been one of the few journalists conducting firsthand reporting of the ongoing conflict in Yemen; travelling extensively throughout the country, both in areas under Houthi rebel and government control. Her reporting has documented the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Yemen, including the bombing, starvation and spread of disease across Yemen. Her investigation into a 2015 attack on a Yemeni funeral - the deadliest of the conflict so far - provided key evidence in the case against weapons sales to Saudi Arabia by the US and UK. She investigated Shia clerics at some of Iraq's holiest shrines and uncovered the exploitation of vulnerable girls and young women, tricked into `pleasure marriages'. Her reporting has also uncovered the complicity of the Egyptian army in the booming trade in organ trafficking across North Africa.
