epa10014599 Yemeni laborers repair a street near UNESCO-listed buildings in the old city of Sana'a, Yemen, 12 June 2022 (issued 15 June 2022).

Three other buildings collapsed, 50 others were severely hit. More than 1,000 buildings have leaky roofs due to heavy rains and associated floods of April and August 2020, according to assessments by the General Organization for the Preservation of Historic Cities in Yemen (GOPHCY).

That includes the old city of Sana'a which is a dense warren of centuries-old mud-brick houses.
