U.N. peace talks on Yemen will start Monday
The delay is due to one of the Yemeni delegations not being able to arrive in Geneva until Sunday evening
U.N.-brokered peace talks, set to bring Yemeni warring sides in Geneva, will start Monday instead of Sunday, the United Nations said in a statement.
The delay is due to one of the Yemeni delegations not being able to arrive in Geneva until Sunday evening.
The talks are expected to last three days.
Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition targeted arms depots belonging to the Iran-backed Houthi’s and deposed President Abdullah Saleh’s militias in the capital Sanaa, witnesses told Al Arabiya News Channel on Saturday.
The coalition planes also struck houses of those belonging to the rebels.
During the airstrikes, the Houthi militias also targeted residential homes in al-Basateen and Al-Mansoura neighborhoods in Aden city, which left several people killed and others injured, according to local journalists there.
