The U.N. aid coordinator in Yemen announced Wednesday he was leaving his post just days after the U.N. envoy for the war-torn country also said he was stepping down. Jamie McGoldrick, who has served as the Yemen humanitarian coordinator for two years, said he would be leaving the country for a position in New York. The United Nations has not announced the appointment of a new aid coordinator for Yemen.Separately, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has tapped mediator and former aid official Martin Griffiths of Britain to be the next peace negotiator for Yemen, taking up a mission that two U.N. envoys have quit in frustration, diplomats said Wednesday. U.N. sources said Wednesday that Houthi rebels have banned over 35 U.N. and international agencies and relief groups from working in the territory under their control, allegations denied by a rebel spokesman. A ban would make it even harder to respond to what the U.N. says is the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
