Aden, A Yemeni senior official accused rival Houthi rebels of storming a warehouse used by the World Food Program (WFP), to store humanitarian aid in Red Sea port city of Hodeida.

Abdel-Raqeeb Fateh, the minister of local administration, said in a statement on Friday that the Houthis have turned the WFP warehouse, in al-Durayhimi district, into a military barracks.

Thousands of families were caught in the district's crossfire between the Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition forces fighting them, he added.

Calling for a condemnation from the U.N., Fateh said the Houthis are intimidating humanitarian workers.
