Yemen is also facing the "worst cholera outbreak in the world", the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) warned in a joint statement last month, blaming the outbreak on two years of violence that has engulfed the country.
"We confirm that the coalition cancelled the Djibouti-Sanaa UN flight because of a BBC team on the manifest, asking for the flight to be rescheduled without the journalists", said Ahmed Ben Lassoued, Yemen spokesman for the UN's humanitarian coordination office, UNOCHA.
