Yemen Tops 10 Unhappiest Countries in the World

When I wrote Yemen is burning! published on my Nigerian Times Blog on Saturday, June 4, 2011, my warning was ignored by the United Nations and the Arab League. But the street protests have degenerated into civil war with more than 16, 000 people killed so far.  The Saudi government intervened, but worsened the crisis by bombing hospitals and schools!

Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East, because of corrupt and incompetent government that is too weak to confront religious intolerance and terrorism.

The following are the Top 10 unhappiest countries in the world according to the 2017 annual World Happiness Report  released on Monday.
