The United Nations has submitted proposals on two Yemeni cities caught in a bitter war -- the port city of Hodeida and besieged Taiz -- to warring parties at U.N.-sponsored talks in Sweden.The fight for Taiz and Hodeida, however, shows no sign of waning.The Hodeida draft stipulated that the Arab military coalition fighting the Houthis would cease an offensive on the rebel-held city in exchange for a Houthi withdrawal.Griffiths said the U.N. had simplified the Hodeida draft, which is still under study by the Yemeni delegations.The two sides are also looking at a draft U.N. proposal on the southwestern city of Taiz, under the control of pro-government forces but besieged by the rebels.
