The situation for people living in the Yemeni port city of Aden has been described as "harrowing" by the top United Nations relief official in the country.

An intensification of violence and conflict over the past four months has devastated the city and destroyed the lives and livelihoods of the majority of its people.

Johannes van der Klaauw, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, has just visited Aden.

Isabelle Dupuis asked him for an update.
