Yemen war: Fears of new cholera outbreak as violence escalates

Aid groups fear escalation in fighting could cause a shutdown of vital port of Hodeidah, further exacerbating what is already world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

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.
