Abrar Ibrahim, 12, who weighs 28 pounds, at Al Sadaqa Hospital in Aden, Yemen.

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof turned over most of his space on Thursday to this photo of Abrar Ibrahim, a 12-year-old Yemeni girl who is starving as a result of Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen, backed by the United States.

“Nothing I write,” he explained, “can be as searing or persuasive or true as Abrar is in this photo.”
