GENEVA - The United Nations has called for a "humanitarian" truce in airstrikes and fighting in Yemen as it seeks to deliver aid to civilians trapped in the capital Sanaa.

"I sent a message asking for a truce, a peace pause, a humanitarian pause, for the parties to stop shooting, stop fighting, stop airstrikes, so the people can go to hospitals, can go to seek safety... and go to also find a place for water and food," UN humanitarian coordinator Jamie McGoldrick told reporters in Geneva by phone from Sanaa.
