Sanaa: The first shipment of food aid in three weeks arrived off a rebel-controlled port in western Yemen on Sunday, a United Nations official said.

Abir Atifa, a spokesperson for the World Food Programme for the Middle East and North Africa region, said some 25,000 tons of wheat will be offloaded early on Monday.
