DUBAI (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition that has been bombing the Houthi movement in Yemen for nine months announced on Saturday the end to a ceasefire that began on Dec. 15 but was repeatedly violated by both sides, the Saudi state news agency SPA said on its twitter account.

"The leadership of the coalition supporting legitimacy in Yemen announces the end of the truce in Yemen beginning at 1400 (1100 GMT) on Saturday," the agency said.
