Yemeni women walk past the historical city of Shibam in Hadramaut province of eastern Yemen on October 28, 2008. President Ali Abdullah Saleh allocated 100 million dollars in aid to flood-hit areas of southeast Yemen as the death toll from last week's storms topped 70. Many other people are still missing and thousands are without shelter, the official said. Shibam is a UNESCO World heritage site and is famed for its high-rise mudbrick buildings, mostly dating from the 16th century, that have given the town the moniker "the Manhattan of the desert."
