A Yemeni man fills his car with petrol in the southern city of Aden on Wednesday, where the value of the local currency has sunk to historic lows in recent days, in a new threat to the war-torn country which is already on the brink of famine. In the government-controlled southern capital of Aden, the dollar is trading at more than 1,000 riyal, the highest rate since the war began in 2014, when Iran-backed Huthi rebels seized the northern capital of Sanaa.
