U.N. seeks relief for besieged city


The United Nations humanitari­an coordinato­r for Yemen said he was seeking ways to ensure unconditio­nal access to Taizz, a city of about 25,000 besieged by Shiite rebels who control the capital, Sana.

“Only a few shops are open. Food and other basic goods needed to survive are in short supply. Basic services are scarce, including access to water and fuel,” U.N. humanitari­an coordinato­r Jamie McGoldrick said in Sana after a visit to Taizz.
