GENEVA (Reuters) - Unidentified gunmen raided the office of the International Committee of the Red Cross in the Yemeni port city of Aden on Monday, holding staff at gunpoint and stealing cars, cash and equipment, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The aid agency had been forced to relocate 14 international staff, ICRC spokeswoman Dibeh Fakhr said in an emailed comment.
