WASHINGTON - The White House on Saturday said it was deeply concerned about reports of harm to civilians amid escalating violence in Yemen, and called on all sides involved in the conflict to resume peace talks.

"The United States takes all credible accounts of civilian deaths seriously and we again call on all sides of the conflict in Yemen to do their utmost to avoid harm to civilians," said National Security Council spokesman Ned Price in a statement.

The White House also called for attacks on Yemen's Red Sea ports to come to an immediate end to allow food and other essential supplies to get to all Yemenis.
