Traveling by bus or taxi with children in tow, scores of mothers have fled fighting in Yemen's key port city of Hudaida in recent weeks, finding shelter at a school in the rebel-held capital Sanaa.While some male family members accompanied the women and children to Sanaa, most quickly returned home to look after their property or to fight. The Hudaida offensive, dubbed Operation Golden Victory, is the most intense battle so far in a war that has killed nearly 10,000 people and displaced millions.Since Jan. 1, more than 30,000 people have been displaced by fighting in Hudaida province, including 3,000 from the region's eponymous capital and port, according to the United Nations' humanitarian coordination agency.The Norwegian Refugee Council says fresh water has not reached many parts of the city since Tuesday.
