A Saudi Arabia-led coalition has ended its bombing campaign against rebels in Yemen having "achieved its military goals".

The month-long Decisive Storm campaign had targeted Houthi rebels but largely failed to halt their advance.

the coalition said that a new operation called Restoring Hope will focus on a political solution in Yemen and on counter-terrorism at home.

Iran welcomed the end of air strikes as a step forward.

Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia has accused Shia-led Iran of backing the Houthis, something Tehran denies.
