Yemen's Saudi-backed government has proposed reopening the Houthi-held airport in the capital Sanaa on condition planes are inspected in the airports of Aden or Sayun which are under its control, two government officials said Friday. U.N. mediator Martin Griffiths wants a deal on reopening the airport, shoring up the central bank and securing a truce in Hodeida, the country's main port, held by the Houthis and a focus of the war after the coalition launched a campaign to capture it this year.The U.N. refugee agency said Friday there were nearly 1,500 civilian casualties in Yemen from August through October.UNHCR urged the two sides to do more to protect civilians, saying data from Yemen shows an average of 123 civilian killed and wounded every week during the three-month period, in a war that has killed at least 16,000 civilians.
