    Violence is escalating in Yemen, raising fears of a new cholera outbreak in the port city of Hodeidah.

    Saudi-UAE coalition jets have launched new air attacks on the city, which is held by Houthi rebels.

    Aid groups are worried the fighting could make a humanitarian crisis even worse.

    They are warning of a second cholera epidemic, and that more than eight million people are on the verge of starvation.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Djibouti, just across from Yemen.
