U.N. says assault on Yemen's Hodeidah port could cost 250,000 lives
A long-feared assault on Yemen's port city of Hodeidah by the Saudi-led coalition could cost up to 250,000 lives, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator in the country, Lise Grande, said in a statement on Friday.

"A military attack or siege on Hodeidah will impact hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians," she said.

"In a prolonged worst case, we fear that as many as 250,000 people may lose everything - even their lives."
