Saudi-led airstrike kills 14 in Yemen

Air Strike Near Yemeni Port Monday Kills 16 People

The Western-backed, Saudi-led coalition, says the Houthis attacked the oil tanker off Yemen's main port of Hudaida on Tuesday. "But the two things need to be seen separately, independently of the fact that there is a war".

Guterres said he saw "positive perspectives" for preparing a plan of action "to lead to an effective inter-Yemeni dialogue able to achieve a political solution, with of course the involvement of all those that are relevant in this conflict". The conflict has fanned the world's worst recent cholera outbreak and put many on the brink of starvation.

According to the United Nations, 8.4 million people are on the verge of starvation in Yemen, where food imports are essential to sustain the population. Guterres noted that a child under 5 dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes.

Yemen has been engulfed in a violent conflict between the government headed by Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and the Houthi movement, also known as Ansar Allah.

The final list of pledges showed that each country had offered $500 million.

The tanker was apparently hit by the missile, though the official statement said it was a "slight but ineffective hit", and did not impact the ship's voyage.

The United States announced almost $87 million in additional humanitarian aid, while the European Union pledged €107.5 million in new funding this year.

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

Yemen is now facing the worst man-made humanitarian crisis in the world.

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

A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition said: "We take this report very seriously and it will be fully investigated as all reports of this nature are - using an internationally approved, independent process". Saudi-led airstrikes have killed thousands of civilians and destroyed hospitals, schools and markets.
