The United Nations Security Council is considering Russia's call for a pause in Saudi-led air strikes in Yemen.

The council's president, Dina Kawar, who is also Jordan's UN ambassador, said members needed time to "reflect on the proposal".

The air strikes against Houthi rebels continued for an 11th night yesterday.

The Red Cross has called for a 24-hour ceasefire to bring in desperately needed medical supplies.
