GENEVA (Reuters) – The top U.N. aid official in Yemen called on the Saudi-led coalition to open all Yemen’s sea ports urgently on Tuesday, saying it risked undoing the fight against cholera and hunger, with 7 million already in “famine-like conditions”.
Jamie McGoldrick said the north of the country had 20 days’ stocks of diesel, which were crucial for pumping water and fighting a huge cholera outbreak, and 10 days’ stocks of gasoline, with no prospect of resupply soon.
