The Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations for Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, said on Wednesday that the Houthi militia has refused the organization's access to its detained staff.

Since the arrest of these two employees on the fifth and seventh of last November, their families and agencies have been unable to communicate with them, according to Dujarric, who indicated that one of them works for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and the other at the United Nations Human Rights Office.

"The Yemeni economy is collapsing," Griffiths said in a Security Council session on Yemen.

He explained that "injecting foreign currencies into Yemeni banks would solve the problem of the economy and would contribute to lowering prices."
