Yemen Negotiators to Form Ceasefire CommitteeYemen Negotiators to Form Ceasefire Committee

Yemeni negotiators at UN-sponsored peace talks agreed on Saturday to form a committee to oversee a fragile ceasefire but the day ended without further progress being amid strong mutual distrust, sources close to the talks told Reuters.

Fresh fighting in Yemen also threatened the peace talks, which end on Sunday, their sixth day. The eight-month conflict in impoverished Yemen has killed thousands of people and caused a major humanitarian crisis. The ceasefire committee will be headed by a Lebanese army general and consist of representatives from the Saudi-backed government of Yemen's fugitive President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and from the rival Houthi movement.
