U.N. envoy arrives in Yemen's Aden to advance peace talks
The United Nations envoy to Yemen touched down in the southern port city of Aden on Saturday to discuss prospects for peace talks between the embattled Aden-based government and Houthi forces, a source close to Yemen's president said. Forces loyal to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi backed by mainly Gulf Arab states have been locked in eight months of civil war with the Iran-allied Houthis who rule the capital Sanaa. Previous U.N.-led efforts to solve the crisis through dialogue have failed as battles rage across the country and Saudi-led warplanes bomb positions of Yemen's ascendant Houthi group and its Yemeni army allies.
