The move came after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired towards Riyadh, which it blamed on Tehran.

Two air strikes targeted the ministry late on Friday and plumes of smoke could be seen billowing from the building, the rebel media network Al Masirah quoted witnesses as saying.

The United Nations had warned the total blockade could cause starvation in the impoverished country where war has killed at least 10,000 people in the last 2-1/2 years and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) expressed more concerns on Sunday.

The Houthis control most of northern Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa.

The Saudi-led military alliance is fighting in support of the internationally recognised government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who is based in the southern port of Aden.

16 drown, 7 missing as boat capsizes in Krishna river
The incident comes days after at least 9 people were killed in similar incidents in Vaishali and Samastipur districts of Bihar. Tragedy struck after a boat carrying 38 people capsized at Ferry Ghat in Ibrahimpatnam area of the city on Sunday evening.

It urged in a statement that humanitarian aid be allowed to enter the country immediately, as Yemen has registered one of the highest rates in postpartum deaths. "We can do anything", he said, adding that it was the Houthis' "legitimate right" to do so.

"Washington aids the forces of aggression, politically and militarily, and has pushed them into unsafe pitfalls", Houthi spokesman Muhammad Abdul Salam said on the group's Al-Masirah TV channel.

The coalition opened a land border crossing on Thursday between Saudi Arabia and territory held by the Saudi-backed government, and the port at Aden was reopened on Wednesday.

Should Monday's blockade - that saw the coalition force the closure of all of Yemen's borders - continue, says the United Nations, it would bring millions of people closer to "starvation and death".

The torpedo, nicknamed Al-Manbab, is reportedly capable of hitting enemy ships from far away, although the exact firing reach remains unknown.
