    The United Nations envoy for Yemen is in Sanaa to meet Houthi rebels.

    Martin Griffiths is trying to broker a deal to end the bombardment of the Houthi-controlled port city of Hudaida, by the Saudi-Emirati coalition.

    The coalition backs the Yemeni government, which is demanding the Houthis withdraw.

    The assault is deepening the suffering of civilians trapped in the city.
