Several children among dead in Yemen air strike: Unicef

Aden-An air strike by the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen killed 12 civilians, including seven children, in the costal city of Hodeidah on Monday, medics and a witness said.

Guterres told reporters that in addition to the $2bn already committed, multiple countries had promised more donations in the coming months, leaving him "optimistic that we will be able to reach the level that corresponds to the needs".

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

The UAE is a key player in the Saudi-led coalition now waging war on rebels in Yemen but Abu Dhabi has been at odds with Yemen's President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi for months, with both sides maintaining separate security forces based in the southern city of Aden.

"The fire destroyed huge amounts of fuel and humanitarian aid and foodstuff", a U.N. World Food Programme (WFP) employee said by telephone, adding that there would be an investigation to determine the cause.

"We all know that there is a war".

Worldwide donors today pledged more than US$2 billion to support the delivery of urgently needed humanitarian aid to millions of people in Yemen during a pledging event in Geneva, co-chaired by the United Nations, Sweden and Switzerland.

Jerry Brown said: "This cynical and meretricious abuse of power will poison our air and jeopardize the health of all Americans". The Obama administration drafted the CAFE standards to align federal policy with California's amibitious state policy.

"Independent of the fact that there is a war, there are humanitarian obligations that are assumed by countries", he said.

"We must see action to end the conflict.There are no humanitarian solutions to humanitarian crises".

"The countries that are also party to the conflict were party to these global efforts to support the people of Yemen".

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a military intervention in Yemen in 2015 with the aim of rolling back the Huthi rebels who had seized the capital and restoring the government to power.

The UN s Yemen envoy, Martin Griffiths, has recently visited Riyadh and Sanaa in hopes of revitalising sputtering peace talks.

When the Houthis fired missiles at Riyadh last November, the Western-backed coalition responded by shutting Yemen's airports and ports. The Saudi campaign consisted of an almost-monthlong crippling blockade late previous year which hindered aid delivery.
