    The United Nations says it's concerned a blockade on Yemen could further hamper humanitarian efforts.

    Saudi Arabia has cut land, sea and air access after Houthi rebels fired a ballistic missile towards Riyadh on Saturday.

    The war in Yemen has placed some 20 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from the UN.
