Arab coalition to reopen Yemen’s seaport

The Arab Alliance fighting Houthi rebels in Yemen says the port of Hodeidah will reopen until Friday to allow more UN humanitarian aid to reach Yemen.

Bettina Luescher of the UN World Food Program on Tuesday called on Yemeni parties to extend the availability of Hodeidah as 70% of all imports arrive through the port.

The WHO has implemented a vaccine campaign to help Yemen deal with a diphtheria outbreak. There have been 48 deaths and 678 infections in the last 4 months.
