Saudi-led coalition announces extension of Yemen ceasefire by one month

DUBAI, April 24 (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition announced on Friday it was extending a unilateral ceasefire in Yemen by one month, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported, citing a spokesman of the coalition.

A two-week ceasefire in Yemen announced by the coalition battling the Iran-aligned Houthi group in Yemen expired on Thursday without leading to a permanent truce.
