Video journalist Maad al-Zikry reported on multiple aspects of Yemen’s civil war, including as part of an investigation team that in 2017 uncovered torture at secret prisons run by the United Arab Emirates in southern Yemen. His March 2016 photo of a severely malnourished infant, Udai Faisal, at a Sanaa hospital became an iconic image from the near famine caused by the war. In 2018, he and the AP team travelled across Yemen to cover the spread of hunger and the plight of those displaced by the war.
