U.N. Races to Process Rotting Yemeni Grain

Grain could stave off starvation for millions of citizens

Wheat 381848 960 7206

The United Nations regained access to donated grain stored in the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah on Sunday, and began the task of salvaging food that could stave off starvation for millions of citizens before it rots, reports Reuters.

World Food Programme (WFP) grain stores in Hodeidah have been cut off for eight months, putting 51,000 tonnes of wheat at risk of rotting.

A WFP technical team is now cleaning and servicing equipment in preparation for milling grain, a WFP spokesman told Reuters.
