Arab-led coalition to announce Yemen ceasefire at midnight
 The Arab-led coalition fighting Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi movement will announce at midnight Wednesday it is halting military operations nationwide to support a U.N. ceasefire initiative, three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The suspension in fighting, expected to go into effect Thursday, was agreed in part to avoid a potential outbreak of the new coronavirus in Yemen, where no cases have yet been reported, two of the sources said.
