Earlier on Saturday, the UN envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, announced that peace talks to end the country's deadly crisis would go into a one-month recess. The talks, held in Kuwait, have failed to make any tangible headway, and no venue was announced for the talks when they resume.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
