Saudi-led coalition says Yemen truce will not be renewed

SANAA -- A two-day ceasefire after nearly two years of war in Yemen expired at midday on Monday and would not be renewed, a spokesman for a Saudi-led military coalition told al-Arabiya TV, with each side blaming the other for violations.


The 48-hour truce, announced unilaterally by the Saudi coalition on Friday, failed to halt fighting across the country between the Iran-aligned Houthis and Saudi-led forces, which intervened on the side of the exiled government in March 2015.
