A six-month-old UN-brokered ceasefire in Yemen's war between Iran-backed Huthi rebels and a Saudi-led coalition ended Sunday with no word from the rivals on whether it would be extended.

The conflict that started in 2014 has left hundreds of thousands dead and created what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis with widespread malnutrition and disease.

The ceasefire has twice been renewed since April 2 but neither the UN office in the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, nor the warring parties revealed whether talks were still going on.

The rivals have faced international calls to extend the measure, including from UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, and even the United States and Russia came together at the UN Security Council to back the ceasefire.
