U.N. says grain stores in Yemen's Hodeidah 'at risk of rotting'


U.N. says grain stores in Yemen's Hodeidah 'at risk of rotting'The U.N. special envoy to Yemen on Monday said the urgency of accessing grain stores trapped in a frontline position in the port city of Hodeidah was increasing as the food was "at risk of rotting". The World Food Programme grain stores at the Red Sea Mills are enough to feed 3.7 million people for a month and have been inaccessible for more than five months, Martin Griffiths said. Yemen's almost four-year war has killed tens of thousands of people, collapsed the economy and brought millions of people to the brink of famine.
