  • Overloaded trucks and cars packed with families ply narrow, bumpy mountain roads surrounding this Yemeni city long-besieged by Huthi rebels — evidence that the terms of a truce have yet to be met.
  • The Huthis took control of the capital Sanaa in 2014, prompting the coalition to intervene the following year and giving rise to what the United Nations has termed the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
  • Like many of his neighbours, he holds out hope that the truce will eventually unblock the main roads in and out of Taez.
