The United Nations is warning of a "catastrophic" humanitarian situation in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia has blocked all Yemeni air and land routes, as well as seaports, in response to the missile attack from across the border earlier this week.

The embargo is driving up the already inflated prices of vital commodities and is also stopping much-needed humanitarian aid that keeps an estimated seven million from the brink of famine.

Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from the UN.
