The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen has agreed to allow wounded Houthi rebels to be evacuated, following a visit to the region by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, his office said Tuesday.

"Coalition forces will now permit the UN to oversee a Houthi medical evacuation, including up to fifty wounded fighters, to Oman ahead of another proposed round of peace talks in Sweden later this month," Britain's foreign ministry said in a statement.
