A UN-led committee tasked with monitoring the ceasefire in Hodeidah and its surrounding areas held its first meeting in the Yemeni port city on Wednesday.

Footage shows retired Dutch general Patrick Cammaert, who heads the joint committee, arriving with head of the Yemeni government delegation Major General Sakhir Aziz and other Yemeni government officials in UN-marked vehicles, where they were greeted by Houthi delegation representative Major General Ali al-Mushaki and others.

The meeting can then be seen taking place inside the Union Palace Hotel.

Despite the warring parties agreeing to the ceasefire during talks held in Sweden earlier in December, both sides have accused the other of violating the truce.

The UN voted unanimously in favour of the ceasefire mission in Hodeidah last Friday.
