Head of UN monitors arrives in Yemen’s Hodeidah

Published: Updated:

The head of the UN team tasked with monitoring a fragile ceasefire arrived in Yemen's embattled port city of Hodeidah on Sunday, a UN source said.

Retired Dutch general Patrick Cammaert is heading a joint committee including members of the government and the Houthi militias, in charge of monitoring a truce in the vital Red Sea city.

He made a stop in Sanaa before heading to Hodeidah, a lifeline port city that serves as the entry point for the majority of imports to war-torn Yemen, a UN official said, after holding talks Saturday with Yemen government officials in Aden.
