Yemen's government and Houthi rebels have agreed on phase one of a mutual pullback of forces from the key city of Hodeidah. After two days of talks in the city, UN officials said, the deal on the first phase has been finalised and they have agreed in principle for the second phase.

Under phase one, forces from both sides will withdraw from the ports of Hodeidah, Saleef, and Ras Issa. A pullback from Hodeidah was part of December's ceasefire between Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and the Saudi-supported Yemeni forces.
