The United Nations special envoy to Yemen is planning to invite the warring parties to Geneva next month to discuss a framework for peace talks.

The war in the impoverished country has left almost 10,000 people dead and unleashed what the United Nations describes as the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Saudi Arabia announced Saturday the dismantling of 919 mines in Yemen in two weeks, revealing that Houthis had planted 1 million mines over the past three years.

The UAE is part of a Saudi-led military coalition that has been fighting the Shiite Houthi rebels since March 2015, in order to defend the internationally recognized Yemeni government under President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

However, Saudi Arabia claimed that Houthi fighters had attacked two oil tankers in the Red Sea, and thus it had made a decision to halt oil shipments via Bab el-Mandeb until the waterway was safe. The country is now in the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with more than 22.2 million people in need of assistance.

The alliance called "Coalition Supporting Legitimacy in Yemen" has been operating in the country for three years against Houthis, who have been controlling Hodeidah port, the main conduit for supplies to Yemen.

Yemen may be on the brink of a new cholera epidemic, with a heightened death rate due to widespread malnutrition, and the United Nations is hoping for a ceasefire in the north to allow for vaccinations, the World Health Organization said on Friday.
