Saudi Arabia's foreign minister says a five-day ceasefire in Yemen will start May 12 at 11 p.m.

Adel al-Jubeir (AD'-duhl ahl-joo-BEHR') says the stop in fighting will be renewable, depending on compliance by Yemen's Houthi (HOO'-thee) rebels and their allies.

He urged them to cease fighting.

He made the comments at a news conference in Paris.
