With Sec'y of State John Kerry on hand to show U.S. approval for a "humanitarian pause," Saudi Arabia's foreign minister offered a 5-day halt to airstrikes against Houthi Islamist rebels in Yemen in order for aid to reach millions of civilians. Adel al-Jubeir said, however, any truce is dependent on the Iran-backed rebels and their allies also agreeing to stop fighting. The Saudi-led coalition said it would keep attacking Houthis who strike near the Saudi Arabian border.
