The number of suspected cholera cases in Yemen has dropped for the first time as efforts continue to resist the nationwide epidemic that UN agencies have described as the world's worst outbreak.

Dr Ahmed Zouiten, Senior Emergency Adviser at the World Health Organization (WHO), told journalists in Geneva on Tuesday that it is still too early to say whether the current episode is being beaten in a country where the disease is endemic.

At least 1,400 people have died from cholera since late April in the Arabian peninsula country where two years of war have devastated health facilities, Dr Zouiten told Daniel Johnson.
