Fighting in Yemen has intensified in the past 24 hours.

Houthi rebels are reporting more than 35 air raids in Hodeidah province since early Sunday morning.

The Saudi-Emirati coalition attacks have been targeting what’s known as Kilo -16, the highway leading east out of the Red Sea port.

It’s one of the main supply routes to the capital Sanaa, which is held by Houthi rebels. Those supply routes are vital because, as though the air raids were not deadly enough for civilians, malnutrition may soon become the biggest killer in the war in Yemen.

UN special envoy Martin Griffiths is now in the capital Sanaa for talks with the rebel Houthi leadership.

Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons reports from Djibouti.
