Britain welcomed a call by the United States to end the fighting in Yemen and said that there was a chance to create a humanitarian corridor and head off a "terrible situation".

"This is an extremely welcome announcement because we have been working towards the cessation of hostilities in Yemen for a long time," Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told the BBC.

A Saudi-led coalition that intervened in Yemen’s war in 2015 has conducted frequent air strikes targeting the Iran-aligned Houthi group.
