Health officials in Sana'a expressed fears of a new cholera outbreak on Sunday, after sewers began to overflow in mid-February, exacerbating an already grim health crisis.

According to the Saba news agency, the pipes, which were made of asbestos in 1983, were collapsing as they aged past their life-span. The overflow of sewerage into Sanaa’s old city is now posing a health hazard to residents.

Spokesperson for Yemen’s Ministry of Health Dr Yousif Al Haidari claimed that the country is now experiencing a third pandemic of cholera outbreaks.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its allies have been waging a war on Yemen for the past five years to restore the former regime, which resigned and fled the country amid popular discontent.

The World Health Organization says some 10,000 people have been killed since the coalition launched the war, but rights groups put the death toll at five times higher.
