At least 10 killed in overnight fighting in Yemen’s Taiz

At least 10 people were killed in overnight battles in the Yemeni city of Taiz between Houthis and militiamen, residents and medical sources said on Sunday. The fighting in Taiz comes despite a five-day humanitarian truce which began on Tuesday to distribute aid to the millions deprived of food, fuel and medicine by weeks of fighting. A conference between Yemeni political groups has been scheduled by President Hadi’s government for Monday in Riyadh after the ceasefire ends. The conference was rejected by both the Houthis and fighters loyal to former president Saleh, meaning it will not provide an opportunity for peace talks.
