The Saudi-led coalition supporting government forces in Yemen has said it will respect an UN-backed ceasefire that came into today.

Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who are trying to overthrow the government have also said they will respect the truce.

More than 6,000 people have been killed and 2m displaced in more than a year of fighting between the two sides.

Negotiations on ending the conflict are due to be held later this month in Kuwait.
