The U.N. warned Friday that shelling and airstrikes in Yemen's Hudaida province have targeted humanitarian workers and infrastructure, threatening its ability to feed 3.5 million "very hungry people".In August, WFP said it had provided emergency food assistance to some 700,000 of the around 900,000 people in the province considered to be at severe risk.Agency spokesman Herve Verhoosel decried that a number of security incidences had been reported since Wednesday, including at the Red Sea Mill Silos, which mill a quarter of the agency's monthly wheat requirements in Yemen.Nearly 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen's conflict since 2015, when the Arab coalition intervened in support of the government.
