From BBC News:

Four World Food Programme (WFP) warehouses caught fire in Yemen’s port city Hodeidah. It’s believed that the fire was caused by an electrical fault and destroyed about 50 tonnes of foodstuff. Workers there have also said the warehouses contained mattresses for displaced persons.

The UN has referred to the conflict in Yemen as “the world’s worst humanitarian crisis” with more than 20 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.

In November last year, the Saudi-led coalition allowed aid deliveries to the port of Hudaydah and Sanaa airport following urgent UN appeals.

Hodeidah port, on the Red Sea, handles the bulk of Yemen’s imports, including critically-needed food and aid supplies. The three-year war in the country, which was already the Arab world’s poorest, has pushed it to the verge of famine.

Reuters television footage showed thick plumes of smoke rising into the air and fire fighters dousing flames.
