  • The Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthis said that it was halting military operations nationwide in support of U.N. efforts to end a five-year war that has killed over 100,000 people and spread hunger and disease.
  • The move aims to facilitate talks sponsored by U.N. special envoy Martin Griffiths for a permanent ceasefire.
  • The announcement is the first major breakthrough since the United Nations convened the warring parties in late 2018 in Sweden, where they signed a ceasefire in the Red Sea port city of Hodeidah.
  • Yemen, already the Arab world's poorest country, has been mired in violence since the Houthis ousted the government from power in Sanaa in late 2014.
