Government troops and rebels clashed again Tuesday near a Yemeni port city crucial for humanitarian aid, where hundreds of thousands of civilians could be trapped as war closes in.Five days of battles between Iran-backed Houthi rebels and the army, allied with the Arab coalition, have left more than 150 combatants dead in the Red Sea province of Hudaida.The Arab coalition has since retaken most of the country's ports.The port of Hudaida is crucial for aid delivery and food imports to Yemen, where famine looms over 14 million people and a child dies every 10 minutes, according to the U.N.The World Health Organization says 10,000 people have been killed since the Arab coalition intervened on the side of the government in 2015 .
