First fuel ship allowed in Yemen as part of truce

CAIRO (AP) – A tanker carrying badly needed fuel arrived in Yemen’s blockaded port of Hodeida yesterday, as a cease-fire meant to stop the fighting in the war-torn country for two months entered its first full day.

The truce agreement, which took effect on Saturday evening, allows for shipments of fuel to arrive in Hodeida and for passenger flights to resume from the airport in the capital of Sanaa. Both Hodeida and Sanaa are held by the Houthi rebels.
