Yemen conflict: No extension to 48-hour truce

The Saudi-led multinational coalition fighting the Houthi rebel movement in Yemen says a 48-hour cessation of hostilities will not be extended. A coalition spokesman said the truce, which ended at midday (09:00 GMT), had been violated repeatedly by the rebels. A pro-Houthi Yemeni army spokesman also accused the coalition of breaches.

The truce brought residents of the capital, Sanaa, a brief respite from air strikes. But fighting continued around the city of Taiz. More than 7,000 people have been killed since the conflict in Yemen escalated in March 2015, when the coalition launched a military campaign in support of the government against the Houthis and allied security units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

More than three million people have also been displaced by the fighting, and 21 million are in need of some form of humanitarian assistance.
