Saudi oil tanker hit in Houthi attack off Yemen - coalition

Saudi soldiers stand guard before aid supplies are unloaded from a Saudi air force cargo plane at an airfield in Yemen's central Province of Ma’arib

It includes $930 million from Saudi Arabia and the UAE which lead the coalition air strikes.

Global donors today pledged more than US$2 billion to support the delivery of urgently needed humanitarian aid to millions of people in Yemen during a pledging event in Geneva, co-chaired by the United Nations, Sweden and Switzerland.

In opening remarks, Guterres decried catastrophic situation in Yemen, pointing out that a child aged under 5 dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes.

The spokesperson of the Arab coalition fighting to support legitimacy in Yemen said that a Saudi oil tanker was subjected to a Houthi-Iranian attack on Tuesday afternoon.

KERRY HUBARTT: From 'gun control' to a repeal of the 2nd Amendment?
Talk show host Larry King says he believes student protesters should demand repeal of the "poorly written" 2nd Amendment. Heller , "has provided the NRA with a propaganda weapon of huge power".

The UN called the incident "one of the deadliest attacks on children since the conflict in Yemen escalated in March 2015". "We all know who the parties [are] to the war but the two things need to be seen separately", the United Nations chief told reporters.

More recently, the Houthi movement claimed to have fired a ballistic missile targeting Saudi Aramco in the southern Saudi province of Najran two weeks ago. "But with worldwide support, we can and must prevent this country from becoming a long-term tragedy", he said.

"While these contributions will provide some immediate relief, no amount of humanitarian or development assistance will end this conflict and the suffering of millions", the agency acknowledged.

The Emiratis contracted Wikistrat, an Israeli company founded in 2010, in the lead up to the Saudi-led coalition intervention after Houthi rebels overran the capital and other major cities across the country, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Theodicia Carpenter was also sent the ashes, and she, in turn, laid them to rest at her family cemetery in Poughkeepsie, New York. Her husband, Gopalrao, inspired her to educate herself at a time women education was not given much importance.

"I believe there is an opportunity and that opportunity must be seized", Guterres said, explaining that Griffiths was "encouraged" by his trip and sees a window for further talks.

The war has killed more than 10,000 people, displaced more than 2 million, and driven the country - already the poorest on the Arabian Peninsula - to the verge of starvation.

Last week the Houthis launched a flurry of missiles which Saudi Arabia said it had intercepted over Riyadh.

While the coalition has eased the blockade, restriction on deliveries persist.

Vietnam veterans are welcomed home at Heights events
One thing can be certain at every veterans event in Pittsfield: Anthony Pastore will sing the national anthem. Vietnam Veteran James Hertner said, "March 29th was the last day of our troops being removed from Vietnam".
