Warring Yemen sides begin truce, warn against violations

Rival sides in Yemen’s year-long conflict began a tentative truce overnight on Sunday saying they were committed to the halt in hostilities despite pockets of deadly fighting in the hours leading up to it.

The conflict between the Yemeni army backed by Saudi Arabia and its Houthi rebel enemies has killed more than 6,200 people and triggered a humanitarian crisis in one of the Arab world’s poorest countries.
