English/Nat The first E-U shipment of aid to famine-ridden Ethiopia has arrived in the port of Djibouti. Thirty thousand tonnes of wheat is being off loaded at the dock, ready to be despatched to the worst affected areas. Over 100-thousand tonnes of aid is expected to arrive over the weekend - which aid officials say should be enough to avert the crisis. At last, emergency aid for Ethiopia has arrived. The Vale, originating from France, is carrying 30-thousand tonnes of wheat. The food is being loaded into bags before being transported by truck to the worst affected areas. The journey to famine-hit areas such as Gode, Nazret and Kombolcha is expected to take up to three days. Bureaucracy has caused delays, but now The Vale has arrived, aid officials say there should...
The crisis in Yemen is proving a test for Djibouti’s claim to be a shipping hub. Being the closest port to Yemen’s three harbours of Aden, Mukalla and Hudeida – the tiny country is experiencing a dramatic increase in traffic as ships diverted from the war-torn country dock there. Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Djibouti.
WFP base in Djibouti is crucial to delivering food and urgently needed humanitarian supplies to Yemen. The MV Amsterdam carried more than 5,700 metric tons of food including wheat, pulses, vegetable oil and micronutrient powder, which is used to protect young children against malnutrition and anaemia. Since April, WFP has distributed more than 20,000 metric tons of food in nine governorates reaching more 1.5 million Yemenis. However, more distributions are needed as the recent conflict added around 2.5 million Yemenis to the 10 million people already considered “food-insecure,” who were struggling to get enough food for a normal life even before the conflict began.
The United Nations says the Iranian cargo ship carrying humanitarian aid for the people of Yemen is being unloaded in Djibouti. The UN World Food Program spokeswoman Abeer Etefa says the UN has taken charge of the aid cargo. She says all the aid and humanitarian assistance will be sent on World Food Program ships to Yemen. The ship carries 2500 tons of humanitarian aid that includes mainly rice and wheat flour, as well as medicine, water, tents and blankets. Meanwhile Iran’s Red Crescent Society authorities say Djibouti has turned away an aid plane that Tehran had sent for Yemeni refugees. They said although it was coordinated with the UN and World Food Program, Djibouti did not allow the plane to land. The aircraft was carrying 20 tons of most needed supplies. Iran’s Red Crescent Society...

Escalating violence in Yemen has forced thousands to flee the country in search of safety. Many are crossing the Red Sea to Djibouti. “Our teams on the ground are assisting tens thousands of people inside Yemen, despite the fighting. We are also providing the food assistance to people who fled the conflict to other places outside of the country, like here in Djibouti,” said WFP’s Communications Officer Challiss McDonough. WFP is extremely concerned about the impact of the conflict on the people of Yemen, the poorest country in the Arab world. Weeks of violence have left many Yemenis hungry. WFP is doubling its efforts in order to respond to the crisis.

Black Rhino, owned by funds of U.S. investment firm Blackstone Group, and a South African-based firm have signed framework agreements to build a fuel pipeline between Djibouti and Ethiopia, the contractors said on Wednesday. The $1.55 billion pipeline, due for completion in 2018, aims to improve efficiency and safety of importing fuel from the port in Djibouti to land-locked Ethiopia, whose economy is one of the fastest growing in Africa. The new link will deepen growing economic ties between the Horn of Africa nations. Ethiopia is building a new railway line to Djibouti, which is seeking to become a regional shipping hub. Djibouti also hosts U.S. and French military bases. "The pipeline will increase energy security, aid economic development and reduce harmful emissions," Black Rhino c...
