Food Aid Arrives in Yemen's Ports

  • Zlatica Hoke

Ships carrying badly-needed food aid have arrived in Yemen, and are expected to unload on Monday. Reuters reports that a ship carrying about 6,000 tons of flour was allowed to dock at the port of Hodeida after a nearly three-week long blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition was eased. The World Food Program said some 27,000 tons of wheat arrived Sunday at the rebel-controlled Red Sea port of Saleef. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports.
