Yemen fighting forces thousands from homes

UN says Amran state battles have pushed more people into desperation, with more than half of population now needing aid.

    The UN has expressed concern over the displacement of tens of thousands of people in Yemen due to the ongoing fighting between Houthi rebels, tribesmen and government forces.

    Nearly 15 million people need humanitarian aid.

    Relief workers fear the situation will worsen as fighting has intensified after the city of Amran was taken by Houthi rebels.
