Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “UN, ICRC warn of famine over Houthis’ ‘terrorists’ designation” – below is their description.
Senior United Nations officials have urged the United States to reverse its decision to designate Yemen’s Houthi rebels a “terrorist group”, warning it could tip the country into a large-scale famine.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the aim is to hold Houthi rebels accountable for “terrorist acts”, including last month’s deadly blast at Aden airport in southern Yemen.
The US and the Yemeni government have blamed the assault on the Houthis, who deny any involvement. Al Jazeera’s Kristen Saloomey reports from the UN.
