Moves afoot to end Houthi fighting

Diplomatic moves under way to end conflict near Saudi-Yemen border.



    Iran's chief of staff has warned Saudi Arabia to halt its military offensive against Houthi rebels in northern Yemen, according to Iran's state news agency.

    General Hassan Firouzabadi says Saudi action is endangering the entire region.

    Meanwhile Houthi rebels have released new video which they say shows destruction caused by continued Saudi air strikes.

    But diplomatic moves are under way to end the fighting, as Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports.
