By Mohammed Ghobari. ADEN Reuters - Yemen reported its first coronavirus case on Friday as aid groups braced for an outbreak in a country where war has shattered health systems and spread hunger and disease. The news of the laboratory-confirmed case came after a nationwide ceasefire prompted by the virus pandemic began on Thursday.

Authorities have ordered the closure of Ash Shihr port for a week for deep cleaning and instructed workers there to isolate themselves at home for two weeks, according to a directive seen by Reuters.

Facebook temporarily removed posts from readers who tried to share a New York Times article about conflict and hunger in Yemen , which included images of emaciated children. The article highlighted the suffering of Yemeni civilians amid a devastating war pitting Houthi rebels and their allies against a Saudi-led coalition whose campaign of airstrikes, which are aided by US-supplied bombs and intelligence, have killed thousands of civilians. Economic warfare has worsened the despair for many Yemeni families, and the country is at risk of a catastrophic famine. The conflict began more than three years ago, and it received more attention when the killing of a Saudi dissident, Jamal Khashoggi , led to outrage and turned a spotlight on Saudi actions in the region. In another article published on Friday, New York Times editors explained why they decided to publish the photos of the starving children. They reveal the horror that is Yemen today.

It is reminiscent of what is still happening to her own brother who was detained by Houthi militia leaders on November 10, According to her latest information, he has had both legs broken and is unable to walk.
Born in the US, and currently based in Beirut, she's spent much of her adult life trying to digest what that word means, and how it is presented to us. She takes photos of bodies — naked, clothed and covered — and in turn has become an accidental expert in how flesh makes us feel. She felt that she needed to understand the world before she tried to capture it.
