Yemen: Situation remains volatile in Aden

02 May 2016

This is the emergency room in Médecins Sans Frontières' hospital in Aden. Last July, the city was the scene of heavy fighting between the Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition, and the hospital was just a few hundred metres from the frontline. In spite of the signing of a truce in mid-April, the situation is still extremely tense and many people injured during sporadic fighting or by landmines continue to arrive at the hospital.
