Yemen City Added to World Heritage in Danger List
2 July 2015, Sana'a, Yemen | UNESCO
Yemen's Old City of Sana'a and Old Walled City of Shibam were added to List of World Heritage in Danger. The Old City of Sana'a sustained serious damage due to armed conflict in the country. Sana'a's many-storeyed tower-houses built of rammed earth add to the beauty of the site, inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1986.
