U.S., Saudis Call For 5-Day Cease-Fire In Yemen To Let In Aid

Yemeni health workers gather during a rally to demand the lifting of the blockade on Yemen, in front of the U.N. building in Sanaa, Yemen, Thursday. Saudi Arabia and the United States on Thursday announced a five-day, renewable cease-fire in Yemen’s war to allow aid to reach millions of civilians caught in a humanitarian crisis from the conflict. But the truce is dependent on Iran-backed rebels and their allies also agreeing to stop fighting, they said. (AP Photo/Hani Mohammed)
