    The UN and the European Union are welcoming initial steps by the Saudi-led military coalition to lift its blockade on Yemen.

    The government-held southern port of Aden is now open, and the national airline says they will resume flights out of Aden and Seyoun.

    But the EU says it's not enough to prevent mass starvation.

    The UN and aid agencies are demanding a full lifting of the restrictions, to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe.
