Yemen: Hundreds protest against rising food prices in Taiz amid riyal collapse

Hundreds of people protested in the Yemeni city of Taiz on Thursday against rising food and basic commodity prices amid the collapse of the national currency. Several local shops have shut down following the depreciation of the riyal, which has lost more than half its value against the US dollar. One resident called on the Saudi-led coalition backing the government to leave the country... Еще, accusing it of being “mercenaries of America and Israel.” “The people demand the authorities go back to Aden or Marib to carry on with their work,” another protester said. On Monday, Saudi Arabia reportedly said it would grant $200 million (€174 million) to Yemen's Central Bank to help stabilise the Yemeni currency.
