    A fresh round of talks between Yemen's warring factions may take place soon in Jordan, according to a senior Houthi official.

    The United Nations' Special Envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, met Houthi rebels before heading for Riyadh to ensure a recent peace deal reached in Sweden is fully implemented.

    Both sides have been accused of violating the ceasefire agreement over Yemen's port city Hodeidah.
