SANAA, Yemen, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Planes from Oman and Libya hauling relief aid for rain-soaked parts of Yemen began arriving Tuesday at the Mukala airport.

Also among the planes carrying food supplies, blankets, tents and medical personnel also included a craft owned by a Yemeni migrant living in the United Arab Emirates, the Yemeni-run news agency SABA reported.

During the last few days, Yemen experienced heavy rains, which officials blame for more than 60 deaths and the destruction of more than 1,000 homes. Authorities said another 31 people were reported missing.
