Yemen ambassador warns of historical environmental disaster in Red Sea
Yemen's Ambassador to Poland has warned that a long stranded oil tanker in the Red Sea might explode and cause one of the biggest environmental disasters in history.
Mervet Mujalli told Polish foreign ministry officials and environmentalists today the Houthi rebels controlling the adjacent port of Hodeidah had denied UN experts access to the vessels to do maintenance works on it and rejected a governmental offer to offload the fuel for the people living in the militant-controlled territories.
The load, if discharged, would help improve the humanitarian condition of the people suffering, among many, the shortage of fuel under the radical militia's ruthless rule.
