Australia has renewed a $110 million aid deal with the International Red Cross, as the organisation revealed more disturbing details on the conflicts in the Middle East.

Its new report found deaths in Iraq, Syria and Yemen accounted for almost half of all the total fatalities in the world's conflicts.
