Some government ministers have accused the Houthis of faking a pullout and handing the port to some of its own fighters.

    The United Nations says the withdrawal of Yemen's Houthi rebels from three major ports is going according to plan.

    This, despite the Yemeni government saying the pullout is just a ploy.

    It accuses the Houthis of handing over control to its allies.

    The redeployment of fighters is part of a UN-brokered deal and is expected to continue over the next few days.

    It includes Hodeidah, which is the main entry point for food and humanitarian aid.

    Al Jazeera's Laura Burdon-Manley reports.
