Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said firming up an April 11 ceasefire was essential to the success of the hard-won peace negotiations in Kuwait. The United Nations hopes that the negotiations — which were originally due to begin on Monday — will end fighting across Yemen that has killed more than 6,800 people and driven 2.8 million from their homes since March last year.
