The warring parties in Yemen have agreed to a cessation of hostilities starting at midnight on April 10 and peace talks in Kuwait beginning April 18, United Nations special envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said on Wednesday.
There have already been several failed attempts to defuse the conflict in Yemen, which has drawn in Saudi Arabia and Iran and triggered a humanitarian crisis in the country. "This is really our last chance," Ould Cheikh Ahmed said. "The war in Yemen must be brought to an end." - Reuters
