Iran to send cargo ship to Yemen as truce takes effect

An Iranian cargo ship will set sail for the rebel-held Yemeni port of Hodeida Sunday evening, Iran’s Tasnim news agency said, in a move likely to fan further tensions with Saudi-led forces blockading the country. Yemen’s Iran-allied Houthi militia earlier Sunday accepted a five-day cease-fire proposed by Saudi Arabia after more than a month of bombing that has caused severe shortages of food, medicine and fuel. Tasnim reported that the cargo ship would carry 2,500 tons of humanitarian aid including food staples and medicine.
