Yemen's Houthi group carried on fighting across Yemen Monday despite a cease-fire announcement by its Saudi-led foes, and media controlled by the Iran-allied movement acknowledged that its forces had shelled targets inside Saudi Arabia.The Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television reported Houthi forces shelled the northerly Al-Tawal region on the Saudi border hours after the truce was meant to have started, and that Saudi forces had retaliated.A senior Houthi official said his side had not been formally notified of any cease-fire by the United Nations.The Sabanew.net website, loyal to the Saudi-backed Yemeni president, Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi, said Houthi militias had shelled several residential communities in the southern town of Dalea, about 170 km (105 miles) north of Aden.
