Yemen Arab Coalition blocking ports
The Coalition wants the supply of weapons from Iran to the Shiite Houthi family-rebelen in Yemen. The measure follows the interception of a missile that Saturday by the Houthi's to the Saudi capital Riyadh was fired.
During the blockade are aid workers and relief supplies have passed, said the coalition. By the civil war in Yemen are more than 10,000 deaths. Also, the war led to a serious humanitarian crisis. More than half a million Yemenis have been affected by cholera and against the seven million are threatened by hunger, say the United Nations.
