    A ceasefire deal between the Yemeni government and Houthi fighters appears to be on hold despite an attack less than an hour after it came into force.

    The fighters targeted an official from the interior ministry outside the northern city of Saada.

    One soldier was killed and seven others were wounded in the attack.
