Saudis End Air Campaign in Yemen, Seek Political Solution

Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday it was ending a month-long campaign of air strikes against the Houthi rebels who seized large areas of Yemen and said it would back a political solution to bring peace to its war-ravaged neighbor. Iran, which has supported the fellow Shi'ite Houthis, welcomed the ceasefire, which followed months of factional fighting between the militant group and forces loyal to the government, which was driven out of the capital Sanaa. Saudi spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Asseri said the alliance may still target Houthis, telling reporters in Riyadh, "The coalition will continue to prevent the Houthi militias from moving or undertaking any operations inside Yemen."
