Yemen Peace Talks in Crisis

Yemen Peace Talks in Crisis

Houthi fighters and political allies of ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh have signed a deal to  set up a power-sharing council to govern war-shattered Yemen.
But the United Nations says the deal threatens peace talks and Yemen’s government has reportedly reacted by declaring the peace process over, Euro News reported.
The Houthis and Saleh loyalists hold most of the country’s north while Yemen’s Saudi-backed ousted government, forced out of the capital Sanaa, is now based in Aden.
But even there fugitive president, Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi, is struggling to impose his authority. A Saudi-led alliance intervened in Yemen’s conflict in March 2015 to try to restore Hadi to power.
The devastating civil war has killed more than 6,000 people and caused a humanitarian crisis.
