Yemen Parties Agree to Two-Month Truce

Saudi Arabia and Iran-backed Houthi fighters agreed on Friday to a two-month truce, bringing a temporary halt to a seven-year-old war in Yemen that could create new momentum for a diplomatic end to the conflict.

For the first time since 2016, the rival parties agreed to bring a unified halt to fighting in Yemen, a conflict the United Nations says has created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
