Yemen Warring Parties Agree to Partial Truce

The warring parties in Yemen's civil war have agreed to a partial cease-fire.  The Saudi-led coalition and Iran-backed Houthi rebels have been participating in U.N.-sponsored peace talks in Sweden.

It's the biggest step toward a truce between the parties in two years.  On Thursday, the U.N.'s  secretary general announced  that they came to an agreement regarding the dispute over the city and port of Hodeida, which is one of Yemen's largest cities and its main Red Sea port.

Both the coalition and rebels will pull their military out of Hodeida and allow the flow of humanitarian aid into the country.

From there, the truce will eventually expand to a province-wide cease-fire.

Millions of people in Yemen are food insecure and need some sort of assistance because of the effects of the civil war.

The U.N.

Has called the situation in Yemen the world's worst humanitarian crisis.  The U.N.'s secretary general said there are other issues the two groups need to figure out, and they will discuss them "without interruption."  The next round of peace talks is scheduled for January.
