Officials say fighting along Yemen's west coast kills 165

SANAA: Yemeni officials say fighting between a Saudi-led coalition and the Shiite rebels along the country's west coast has killed more than 165 people from both sides.
The officials said Saturday the fighting has been concentrated over the past two days in the al-Tuhyta district, south of the key port city of Hodeida. It comes amid efforts by the UN special envoy to bring the coalition and the Iran-aligned rebels, known as Houthis, to restart peace talks.

On Sunday, the coalition said it had paused its campaign to retake Hodeida in support of United Nations efforts as it called for rebels' ``unconditional withdrawal'' from the city.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
Yemen's civil war has been raging since March 2015.
