Frustrated by the U.N.'s failure to deliver desperately needed aid, residents of Aden in war-torn Yemen have started to vent their anger at the world body and at rebels besieging their city.The rebels have also prevented a convoy carrying aid from Hodeida port from entering Aden, local activist Adnan al-Kaf said.Three aid ships continue to wait off Aden, she said Monday.The U.N. had hoped that the six-day truce would last until the end of the month of Ramadan.Bakri also slammed the U.N.'s delivery of 38 trucks carrying aid to Aden neighborhoods that are held by the rebels, while it failed to bring aid into areas controlled by the other side.More than 21.1 million people – over 80 percent of Yemen's population – need aid, with 13 million facing food shortages, while access to water has become difficult for 9.4 million people.
