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 o...

Saudi-led coalition ready to use 'calibrated force' to push Yemen port deal: UAE

The Saudi-led coalition is prepared to use "calibrated force" to push the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement to withdraw from Yemen's Hodeidah port city under a U.N.-sponsored deal, a senior United Arab Emirates official said on Wednesday. Yemen's warring parties have failed to pull troops from the country's main port under a month-old truce, reviving the threat of an all-out assault on Hodeidah that could unleash famine. The Houthis control Hodeidah while other Yemeni factions backed by the coal...

Fear of renewed fighting, hunger as Yemen port troop pull-out stalls

The resignation this week of the U.N. official monitoring the ceasefire, who quit days after his convoy was shot at, has hammered home the potential for the peace deal to collapse. If fighting restarts in earnest around the port of Hodeidah, the main supply route into the country could be cut off, leaving no way to feed millions of people on the verge of starvation. The truce itself has largely held in the port of Hodeidah since coming into force a month ago, but late on Wednesday clashes at f...

Explosions rock Yemen's main port for second day after truce

The Iranian-aligned Houthi movement and the Saudi-led government had traded blame for violations on the first day of the truce on Tuesday, when residents reported shelling on the eastern and southern outskirts of the Houthi-held city at night. The United Nations brokered the truce deal as part of confidence-building measures at peace talks last week in Sweden to avert a full-scale assault on the port that is vital for urgent aid supplies for millions facing starvation. A source in the Saudi-le...

At the close of a week of talks in Sweden, U.N.
