    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.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Jamjoom reports.
