BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 A.M.) – Footage filmed on Sunday shows a convoy of Yemeni forces, backed by the Saudi-led coalition, on the outskirts of Duraihemi, just south of Hodeidah.

Tens of people were reportedly killed in heavy fighting between Houthi rebels and Saudi-led coalition-backed forces in the port city, following the collapse of United Nations-sponsored peace talks.

Peace talks between Yemen’s two main parties failed at the first hurdle on Saturday, after three days of waiting for the Houthi delegation to show up.

UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths said the failure of the talks did not represent a “fundamental blockage” to the peace process and that he would meet with Houthi representatives in Sanaa.
