    Saudi Arabia has accused Iran of destroying attempts to end the war in Yemen.

    It says Houthi rebels couldn't operate without Tehran's backing.

    The Houthis, on the other hand, say the Saudi-backed government is not prepared to enter a dialogue process.

    The Houthis have been fighting government forces, supported by a Saudi-led coalition, since 2015.

    With no end in sight, the humanitarian situation is still deteriorating for the almost 21 million Yemenis that the UN estimates are in need of assistance.
