• Yemen peace talks start Thursday as rebels join – UN


    SANAA: Yemen peace talks are to start Thursday in Kuwait, the United Nations said, after rebels agreed to join the delayed negotiations following assurances pro-government forces would respect a ceasefire. The talks are the most important attempt yet to resolve Yemen’s devastating conflict, which the UN says has killed more than 6,400 people and forced almost 2.8 million forced from their homes. “The Yemeni peace negotiations will start tomorrow in Kuwait under the auspices of the United Nations,” said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric. A delegation of rebels left Yemen’s capital on Wednesday to join the talks saying the UN had assured them over the ceasefire.
