The US says it is speeding up weapons deliveries to a Saudi-led coalition bombing Houthi rebels who have taken up arms against the government in Yemen.

The US is also boosting intelligence sharing with the coalition, Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

Aid agencies have warned of a looming humanitarian crisis in the Yemeni port of Aden, which has seen street battles between rebels and government allies.

Some 550 people are said to have died in the last fortnight of fighting.
