• Kerry praises Qatar for help on Yemen crisis


    WASHINGTON D.C.: United States Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) praised Qatar for its help in trying to resolve the crisis in Yemen, amid hints the US is in contact with Shiite rebels through go-betweens. The Huthi militia on Sunday (Monday in Manila) set a three-day deadline for political parties to resolve the power vacuum in Yemen left after the president and prime minister offered to resign last month. The Huthis’ lightning offensive when they seized the presidential palace and key government buildings on January 20, plunged the country deeper into crisis and prompted US-backed President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and his premier to tender their resignations.
