A truce between the Yemeni government and Houthi fighters has been overshadowed by clashes that erupted less than an hour after the ceasefire deal came into force.

The fighters targeted an official from the interior ministry in a shooting outside the northern city of Saada.

One soldier was killed and seven others were wounded in the attack.
