Warring parties in Yemen reached a preliminary agreement on Tuesday to release all prisoners beginning within 20 days, sources at the UN-backed peace talks in Kuwait said.

The agreement is one of the most important milestones yet in nearly three weeks of negotiations that have in recent days struggled to maintain a ceasefire on the ground and appeared headed for collapse.

A Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen's conflict a year ago, mainly with airstrikes in support of the country's fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, Reuters reported.
