Saudi-led coalition says foils Houthi attack on oil tanker

Several children among dead in Yemen air strike: Unicef Saudi-led air strike kills 12 civilians, including seven children

The UN is seeking a $3 billion (Dh11bn) humanitarian plan for Yemen to help 22 million people who have been left in urgent need of aid.

The Yemen conflict was unleashed when the Iran-backed Houthi rebels seized the capital Sanaa.

Workers said the warehouses also contained hundreds of thousands of mattresses meant for those displaced by the war, which has killed more than 10,000 people and crippled the economy.

"The Houthis should immediately stop their indiscriminate missile attacks on populated areas of Saudi Arabia", said HRW's Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson.

"This pledging conference represents a remarkable success of worldwide solidarity to the people of Yemen", said UN Secretary-General António Guterres. The United Nations said that blockade raised the danger of mass starvation, and it was partially lifted.

An air strike near the Yemeni port of Hodeida Monday killed 16 people in a building where Huthi rebels were gathering, security sources said.

Yemen's Ansarullah fighters have targeted a Saudi Arabian warship in retaliation to deadly airstrikes on the improvised country's province of Hudaydah.

Saudi Arabia and its allies shut down the country's land, sea and air borders past year in response to a missile attack by the Huthis that was intercepted near Riyadh. "In addition, commercial imports, which account for most of Yemen's food, fuel, and medicine, must have the same freedom of movement".

Most humanitarian aid enters Yemen through Hodeidah but the government accuses Houthis who control the port of smuggling weapons through it.

"We need to find the ideal solution which is a return to the talks table, to put an end the war, to return to a sustainable system supported by the people of Yemen", he said, adding that this should include "the putschist parties" - referring to the Houthis - and those supported by the global community.

The coalition spokesman said that the continuation of these attempts reflected the danger of these militias and those who support them on regional and global security.

Jan Egeland, secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council, called for a ceasefire and end to the war.
