Four mobile cranes have arrived in Houthi-controlled Hodeidah port, the United Nations said Monday, after a Saudi-led Arab coalition agreed to let them into Yemen, where nearly three years of war have pushed the country to the verge of famine.The cranes are expected to help ease a humanitarian crisis ravaging Yemen since its war began in 2015 . Before the conflict, Hodeidah port handled around 70 percent of Yemen's imports, including critically-needed food and humanitarian supplies.
