Severe food shortages caused by a devastating Saudi war have forced Yemenis to search for food in rubbish dumps, as footage filmed on Tuesday from the port city of al-Hudaydah shows.

The ongoing Saudi military campaign, which is accompanied by a crippling blockade, has left many people unable to receive aid, with the UN saying more than eight people in Yemen are on the brink of famine.
