In pictures: Life by the sea in Yemen's Hodeidah
A fisherman gestures to other worker at the port in Hodeidah, Yemen on 28 July.
Fishing activities here have dropped dramatically since 2015, when an armed conflict broke out between the Houthis and a Saudi-backed coalition.
The fighting has taken place just a few kilometres from the Red Sea port, which is under Houthi control, posing a serious threat to an industry that the World Bank says had employed some 10,000 people before the war. (MEE/Alessio Romenzi)

There's a shortage of available medicine in Yemen, due to the restrictions on imports through Hodeidah's port, as well as an almost complete halt to commercial shipments and medicines through the airport in the capital Sanaa.
The war has devastated Yemen's already fragile health system, with less than half of the country's medical facilities fully operational. Prices of essential medicines have also more than doubled, making them unaffordable for most of the population. (MEE/Alessio Romenzi)
Wounded on her left side by shrapnel, Nuseiba lies down on a bed in Hodeidah hospital as her unharmed younger brother stands nearby on 28 July.
At night, a mortar allegedly fired by Saudi-led coalition fighters hit the bedroom where Nuseiba was sleeping along with her parents and siblings, injuring her and most of her family.
Due to the partial misfiring of the mortar shell, no deaths were reported in this attack. (MEE/Alessio Romenzi)
People walk through a blockade made of shipping containers in Hodeidah to counter potential attacks from the Saudi-led coalition.

The US is one of the Western countries singled out by the United Nations in September for its support of the Saudi-led coalition accused of starving Yemen's civilians as a war tactic.
Saudi Arabia and the UAE, the main parties in the coalition, are two of the biggest buyers of US, British and French weapons. (MEE/Alessio Romenzi)
