Yemen's exiled government said Monday it expects a deal shortly on a humanitarian cease-fire that would run through the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday later this month, as airstrikes by Saudi-led warplanes across the country killed nearly 100 people, including 40 people in a raid on a livestock market in southern Yemen.The U.N. has been pushing for a halt to fighting and air raids that have killed nearly 3,000 people in Yemen since March when a Saudi-led coalition intervened against Houthi forces in a bid to restore President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi. The United Nations engineered a five-day humanitarian cease-fire in May but aid groups said it did not last long enough to cover all of Yemen's needs.
