ABUDHABI (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates pledged $200 million (£153.2 million) in aid to Yemen, to be spent during the month of Ramadan, the UAE’s Minister of State for International Cooperation said on Monday.

Both countries are working with humanitarian organizations to ensure the aid would be distributed in both Houthi and government-controlled areas, said Reem al-Hashimy at a press conference in Abu Dhabi.
