Head of UN ceasefire monitors arrives in Yemen's Hodeida

The head of the United Nations team tasked with monitoring a fragile ceasefire arrived in Yemen's embattled port city of Hodeida on Sunday, a UN source said. Retired Dutch general Patrick Cammaert is heading a joint committee including members of the government and the Huthi rebels, in charge of monitoring a truce in the vital Red Sea city and its surroundings. Cammaert arrived in Hodeida from the rebel-held capital Sanaa after meeting with government officials in Aden. Yemen's warring sides agreed on a ceasefire to halt a devastating offensive by government forces and an allied Saudi-led coalition against rebel-held Hodeida at peace talks in Sweden this month. The UN Security Council unanimously approved a resolution authorising the deployment of observers to Hodeida to monitor the truce that came into effect on Tuesday.
