Will the ceasefire in Yemen hold?

It is hoped to be the starting point to ending nearly four years of civil war in Yemen.

A ceasefire has begun in Hodeidah, the port city that is the main gateway for the bulk of much-needed food and aid.

Millions of Yemenis on the brink of starvation could be saved if the truce is fully implemented.

The ceasefire was agreed at peace talks in Sweden last week by Houthi rebels and government leaders backed by the Saudi-UAE-led military coalition.

What are the chances of a lasting political settlement? And what would that mean for the Saudi-Emirati-led alliance?
