Old part of Sana'a, Yemen. Under threat since 2015.

Sana'a (also spelled Sanaa or Sana; Arabic: صنعاء‎‎ Ṣan'ā' pronounced [sˤɑnʕaːʔ], Yemeni Arabic: [ˈsˤɑnʕɑ]) is the largest city in Yemen and the centre
of Sana'a Governorate. The city is not part of the Governorate, but forms the separate administrative district of "Amanat Al-Asemah". Under the Yemeni
constitution, Sana'a is the capital of the country, although the seat of the internationally recognised government moved to Aden in the aftermath of the
2014–15 Yemeni coup d'état. The escalation of conflict and militarization of Yemen's Western Coast is coming at a great cost to civilians. Since the
beginning of the conflict in March 2015, some three million people have been forced to flee their homes for safety, according to UN estimates.


Timbuktu, Mali. In jeopardy since 2012



The fighting in northern Mali could damage the World Heritage Site of Timbuktu's "outstanding architectural wonders".
It was founded by Tuareg nomads in the 12th Century and within 200 years had become an immensely wealthy city, at the
centre of important trading routes for salt and gold.
