The United States is seeking to raise the ambition of donors at a United Nations fundraising event on Monday for Yemen's humanitarian crisis, the U.S. State Department spokesman said on Tuesday.

"We are seeking to raise the ambition, not only in this country but on the part of our partners too when it comes to what they are willing to contribute and able to contribute to bring an end to the humanitarian plight of the Yemeni people," State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.
