United Nations call to allow aid into Yemen has been ignored by the Saudi Arabia regime. The coalition recently tightened its blockade after Houthi rebels fired a rocket at the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

The strike comes just a day after Saudi ambassador to the UN Abdallah Al-Mouallimi agreed to reopen some ports to allow aid in.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia's United Nations ambassador said the coalition would take steps to ease the blockade but would not reopen a key rebel-held port to aid shipments unless tighter inspections were put in place. The Saudi closure had drawn worldwide condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

On Monday Saudi agreed to reopen ports in government controlled areas, but demanded extra security measures be put in place around the rebel controlled port of Hodeida.

Airbus seals largest plane order ever at Dubai Airshow
In addition, a separate deal for 175 jets from flyDubai, possibly to be split between Airbus and Boeing is also on the cards. The order, believed to be the biggest ever for Airbus, will more than double the value of the airline's sales for the year.
