Yemeni officials say Houthi rebels and the internationally recognized government have agreed to begin a cease-fire for a week or two before their next round of negotiations.
The officials participated in talks Sunday in Sanaa between the rebels and UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed. They say talks are expected to restart next month.
The officials said the Houthis have agreed to implement a UN Security Council resolution which requires them to hand over weapons and withdraw from territory, including Sanaa.
