War kept Yemen away from tourism

Sana'a (Debriefer) - The Saudi-led military campaign inflicted Yemen's tourism more than US$ 5 billion in annual revenues, the Houthi-appointed acting minister for tourism said on Thursday.
The Arab coalition ruined 473 archeological and historical sites across Yemen, and caused 543 tourist agencies to close, Ahmed al-Alii added.
The 6-year-old war left 95 percent of tourist sector's workers fired, after they subsisted 500,000 people, he said in remarks to the Sana'a-based Saba.
Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis ousted the internationally-recognized government late in 2014.
