RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — The millions of people who've been cut off from humanitarian relief by the war in Yemen may soon be getting food, fuel and medicine. Officials from the United States and Saudi Arabia say a five-day cease-fire will begin, if the rebels and their allies also agree to stop fighting. The Saudis have been leading air strikes against the rebels, who are backed by Iran. The cease-fire plan comes as the rebels and supporters of Yemen's former president consolidate their hold over parts of the southern port city of Aden.
