Saudi Arabia Offers Five-Day Ceasefire in Yemen

Saudi Arabia announced about its readiness to provide a five-day humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen, BBC reports.

A Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes against Houthi rebels in Yemen six weeks ago. According to the UN, at least 1,400 people have been killed.
US Secretary of State John Kerry said Saudi Arabia and Yemeni rebels are discussing when to start the ceasefire.
The Saudi Foreign Minister mentioned any truce would depend on the rebels' co-operation. Saudi Arabia insists the Houthis must lay down their arms for the humanitarian ceasefire to be implemented. The rebels have not yet responded to the appeal.
The Saudi-led coalition aims to restore the government of exiled President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. He fled the capital Sanaa in February and took refuge in the southern port city of Aden, before leaving for Saudi Arabia.
