Yemen conflict: The tribe defending the Saudi border

Saudi Arabia says it has ended its bombing campaign against Houthi rebels in Yemen.

But it said military force would still be used when needed, and operations might continue on a reduced scale.

Jeremy Bowen, the BBC's Middle East editor, reports from the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
