Yemen conflict: Six-year-old Yusra’s new eye

In October, the BBC met Yusra and her family in war-torn Yemen. She had an aggressive tumour in her left eye, but couldn’t get the life-saving treatment she needed.

Now she’s been fitted with a prosthetic eye in Jordan and is returning to her homeland.

She is now cancer-free but has a genetic condition, so follow up checks are being arranged in Yemen.

International Correspondent Orla Guerin reports for the BBC News at Ten.

Produced by Wietske Burema and Hannah Gelbart

Camera: Goktay Koraltan
