Unlike many other cells in the body, heart cells do not multiply. The damage is permanent and heart failure eventually sets in. Just imagine if there was a way to repair and regenerate heart cells. Dr. Sanjiv Dhingra is doing more than imagining this; he’s making it happen. In collaboration with a university in Italy, Dr. Dhingra and his team are developing a tissue “ patch” from ethical stem cells that could ultimately mend broken hearts.

S ANAA, Yemen — A coalition led by Saudi Arabia ordered civilians in rebel strongholds in northern Yemen to flee by nightfall Friday, warning it will strike anything in the region, even as the Saudis pressed for a ceasefire to begin next week. After the evening deadline passed, the coalition’s warplanes attacked a rebel- held complex in the region that was believed to contain weapons, a Saudi news agency reported. The declaration of an entire region of Yemen as a “ military target” was a sharp escalation that raised alarm about more casualties in a conflict that has killed more than 1,400 people — many of them civilians — since March 19. The fighting has also created a humanitarian crisis in what was already the Arab world’s most impoverished nation. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al- Jubeir announced in Paris a ceasefire aimed at allowing humanitarian aid to reach Yemen’s embattled population of 25 million would begin Tuesday — but on the condition the Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, and their allies also halt hostilities. The mixed signals from Saudi Arabia seemed to have two purposes: The declaration of an all- out war in the northern region of Saada, the Houthis’ stronghold, appeared aimed at stopping cross- border attacks against Saudi cities that have inflicted civilian casualties. At the same time, it appeared to pressure the Houthis and their allies — military units loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh — to abide by a ceasefire. Saudi Arabia and a coalition of Arab countries began the air campaign March 26 to break the advance of the Houthis and Saleh’s forces, who overran the capital of Sanaa and much of northern Yemen late last year and have been on the offensive in the south. The Saudis and their allies are seeking the restoration of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who fled the country last month in the face of the Houthis’ advance. Earlier Friday, the coalition declared Saada province “ in its entirety” would be considered a “ military target” and told its population to leave by 7 p. m., according to the announcement on Saudi state TV. The mountainous province that borders Saudi Arabia is the birthplace of the Houthi movement and was the base for rebel forces that swept over northern Yemen. The extent of the coalition’s ultimatum was not clear. The initial statement spoke of all of Saada — which has a population of nearly 900,000 — but state TV later suggested the declaration applied to the city of Saada, which is the provincial capital, and Marran, a small mountain town where the Houthis originated. Coalition planes dropped leaflets in Saada, asking residents to leave and saying all roads would stay open until the ultimatum expires. Security officials in Saada said hundreds of families were seeking shelter outside the province’s main cities and towns. Saudi Brig. Gen. Ahmed Ali Asiri, the coalition spokesman, said airstrikes are being concentrated on all Houthi command centres in the cities of Saada and Marran. He said the declaration was prompted after Houthi rockets were fired over the border and hit Saudi cities, killing at least three people. — The Associated Press Yemeni civilians told to flee rebel strongholds Region declared ‘ military target’ by coalition By Ahmed Al- Haj and Bradley Klapper A_ 29_ May- 09- 15_ FP_ 01. indd A29 5/ 8/ 15 8: 30: 21 PM
