GENEVA (Reuters) - Yemen's stocks of fuel will last until the end of November and stocks of vaccines run out in one month if a Saudi-led military coalition does not allow aid into Hodeidah port and the Sanaa airport, UNICEF's representative in the country said on Friday.

Meritxell Relano, speaking by phone to reporters in Geneva, said fuel prices had risen 60 percent because of the shortage and there were urgent concerns about a diphtheria outbreak, as well as food shortages because of the port closure.
