An earlier version of this article mentioned that MSF had received more than 550 patients in Aden since March 19 "as a result of the Saudi-led bombing". This mention was removed, as this line was not in the original MSF statement.

UN rights chief has said that Yemen is "on the verge of total collapse" as Saudi-led coalition continues to bomb Houthi positions.

"The situation in Yemen is extremely alarming, with dozens of civilians killed over the past four days," UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said on Tuesday.

"The country seems to be on the verge of total collapse".
