"A cease fire announced Tuesday in Yemen's capital city of Sanaa did not appear to be holding, but a U.S. State Department spokeswoman said it nevertheless constituted a 'good step' towards ending violence in the country. It appeared that clashes were continuing Tuesday despite the cease fire announcement, which was to have taken effect at 3 p.m. between government forces and opposition groups, according to State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland."
