Rebels in Yemen say they will respond "positively" to a ceasefire offer by the Saudi-led coalition that has been carrying out air strikes against them.

Saudi Arabia has offered a five-day truce starting on Tuesday, to allow the delivery of humanitarian supplies.

The UN says the air raids have killed at least 1,400 people - mostly civilians - in recent weeks.

The Shia Houthi rebels from northern Yemen launched an offensive last year and now control much of the country.

The Saudi-led coalition aims to restore the government of exiled President Mansour Hadi - who fled the rebel-controlled capital, Sanaa, in February.
