 Houthis tell U.N. to press Saudi-led forces to implement Yemen peace deal

CAIRO (Reuters) - Yemen's Houthi movement called on the United Nations on Saturday to press the Saudi-led coalition to implement the Hodeidah agreement, al-Masirah TV said, citing the movement's political office.

The movement, which a Reuters witness said had started withdrawing from Saleef port in Hodeidah under a U.N.-sponsored deal, added that the Saudi-led forces should take "similar steps".

The movement said its "unilateral step shows our commitment to implement the Hodeidah agreement and to achieving peace," after four years of fighting in the Arab nation.
