    Yemen's Houthi rebels have handed over control of the vital port of Hodeidah to government forces.

    The transfer of the port of Hodeidah and two others is part of a peace deal reached in Sweden earlier this month, aimed at ending almost four years of war which has caused a humanitarian disaster.

    Houthi rebels and Saudi-backed forces have also agreed to open up aid corridors.
