Yemeni forces close in on port city of Hodeidah

June 6, 2018 -- Pro-government forces in Yemen are closing in on the Red Sea port of Hodeida, the main point of entry for aid to the war-ravaged country, following a rapid advance against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

UN officials have warned that an assault on Hodeida, which has a population of about 600,000, would cause a humanitarian calamity. The port is a vital lifeline from which most of the Yemeni population gets food and medicine.

Government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition have been fighting the Shiite Houthi movement in Yemen since March 2015. The coalition accuses the Houthis of bringing Iranian arms in through Hodeida, accusations denied by the rebels.

The three-year conflict has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced more than three million. It has also damaged Yemen’s infrastructure, crippled its health system and pushed it to the brink of famine.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
