    The United Nations special envoy for Yemen has said the warring parties in Yemen will attend upcoming peace talks in Sweden.

    However, Houthi fighters said fighting has continued as the Saudi-Emirati-led coalition launch air raids on the port city of Hodeidah and the head of the World Food Programme, just returned from Yemen, also briefed the Security Council, saying the country was only months away from a full-scale famine.

    Al Jazeera’s James Bays reports.
