Yemen conflict: Aid flight 'not possible' says Red Cross

An aid flight with medical supplies for Yemen has been held back because of logistical problems, as violence in the country continues.

Saudi air strikes have been targeting Houthi rebels for almost two weeks.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was given permission on Monday by a Saudi-led coalition to land planes carrying staff and medical supplies.

The passenger plane landed safely, but the supply flight has been unable to depart.

''The cargo plane which needs to be brought into Yemen with our medical supplies is still not possible right now because of the security situation in Yemen,'' said ICRC spokeswoman Sitara Jabeen.
