UN: Yemen violence worsening, more access to north needed

August 19, 2017 Middle East Monitor 0

Top United Nations officials on Friday warned violence in Yemen was worsening and greater access was needed to the Houthi rebel-held north, particularly through the key Red Sea port of Hodeidah. UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien slammed Yemen’s government and a Saudi-led military coalition for “unilaterally denying or excessively delaying entry to vessels carrying essential cargo” to the port. “It is simply wrong to insist these cargoes go to Aden, not Hodeidah,” O’Brien told the UN Security Council, appealing for countries to back a UN mechanism that started inspecting commercial shipments to rebel-held ports in May last year. The United Nations has worked to avert attacks on Hodeidah port, where around 80 percent of Yemen’s food imports arrive. The Saudi-led […]

A prominent figure within Israel’s far-right Likud Party, Ariel Polstein, has said that the Kurds will never forget how the Zionist state has supported them, with the result that when an independent Kurdistan raises the Israeli flag, the two countries will become allies in the true sense of the word.

KARACHI: Mourners on Saturday attended a state funeral for Ruth Pfau, a German physician and nun who earned international acclaim as “Pakistan’s Mother Theresa” by devoting her life to the eradication of leprosy in the Muslim-majority nation.
Pfau died on Aug. 10 at age 87 in the southern port city of Karachi. State-run television broadcast live footage of her casket being carried by a military guard at the city’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral. She was to be buried at a nearby cemetery later Saturday.
Pakistani politicians, military officials, members of civil society and hundreds of supporters attended the service and paid tribute to her.
Martha Fernando, who worked with Pfau at her Marie Adelaide Leprosy Center, said the German physician’s death was a great loss to humanity. “There is no one like her and there won’t be any replacement to her. We pray to God to send people like her again to this world so that they could continue serving people,” she said.
Pakistan suffered high rates of leprosy up until the mid-1990s. Pfau played a key role in efforts to bring the disease under control.
