Loyalists and rebel forces in Yemen say they will honor a UN-brokered ceasefire that came into effect at midnight on Monday. Despite reports of some violations, analysts say the truce is being largely upheld so far.
Supporters of Houthi rebels staged a massive rally in Yemen's capital, Sanaa, to mark the third anniversary of the Saudi-led bombing campaign. The rebels said the missiles they fired at Riyadh were a "message."
The West must use its diplomatic leverage to ensure the Saudis bring the Yemen conflict to an end, Keith Vaz, British MP and chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Yemen, told DW.
Yemen's Houthi rebels have reportedly caused minor damage to a Saudi oil tanker in international waters. The rebel group has recently stepped up attacks outside the country's borders.
Southern separatists have reportedly seized parts of the interim capital. President Hadi has called on his Saudi allies to intervene in the latest phase of the protracted conflict.
