The battle for a crucial Yemeni port is endangering the lives of dozens of hospitalised children, the United Nations' children's agency said Tuesday.

"Intense fighting in the Yemeni port city of Hodeida is now dangerously close to Al-Thawra hospital -- putting the lives of 59 children, including 25 in the intensive care unit, at imminent risk of death," UNICEF said in a statement.
