    The International Committee of the Red Cross says the Yemeni cities of Sanaa, the country's capital, and al-Bayda now lack clean water. A shortage of fuel caused by the Saudi-led blockade has caused pumping stations to shut down.

    Some Yemeni ports have re-opened to allow in desperately needed food and aid, but critics say it's not enough, as Yemen suffers the world's largest humanitarian catastrophe and the worst outbreak of cholera recorded.
