Topic: Yemen truce starts after shelling, Iran sends cargo ship


By Mohammed Ghobari and Mohammed Mukhashaf CAIRO/ADEN (Reuters) - Saudi-led air strikes hit the rebel-held Yemeni capital Sanaa hours before a five-day humanitarian truce took effect on Tuesday, and Washington cautioned against "provocative actions" after Iran dispatched a cargo ship to Yemen. The ceasefire began at 11 p.m. (2000 GMT), said Brigadier General Ahmed Asseri, spokesman for a Saudi-led coalition that has been striking Yemen's Houthi rebels since March 26, but clashes persisted after that in some areas.
