SANAA, Yemen, A total of 69 new cases of cholera were registered, to a state-run hospital, in Yemen's capital of Sanaa, over the past week, a hospital official, said.

Two of the laboratories' confirmed cases have died, Nasr al-Kadasi, director of al-Jomuhory hospital, said, on Friday.

The new cholera cases were received by the hospital between Apr 28 and May 4, he added.

Last Oct, the World Health Organisation (WHO), reported 51 confirmed cases of cholera, from nine governorates in Yemen, with more than 1,180 suspected cases.

Some 7.6 million Yemenis are living in affected areas, in the conflict-ridden country, whose health system has collapsed, due to a prolonged civil war, according to the WHO.

The impoverished Arab country, in the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, was plunged into a civil war two years ago, leaving more than 10,000 dead, with half of them civilians, and over two million people displaced, according to humanitarian agencies.
