The battleground Yemeni port city of Hodeida was calm Thursday after a minor exchange of fire between the warring parties overnight, a pro-government official said.U.N. chief Antonio Guterres was "breathing down the neck" of officials to make sure the U.N. observers are deployed as soon as possible, Dujarric said.He added that Cammaert will head on Thursday to Jordan's capital Amman, from where he will travel to the Yemeni capital Sanaa and Hodeida.Brigadier Ahmed Al-Kokbani, a Yemeni government representative on the committee, told AFP that the observers' meeting with Cammaert covered the bases of the committee's work.The Redeployment Coordination Committee's observers are due to oversee the withdrawal of the warring parties from Hodeida, including a rebel pullout from the city's docks that are the point of entry for 80 percent of Yemeni imports and nearly all U.N.-supervised humanitarian aid.
