Description

Local media reported that Yemen's Vice President Khaled Bahah, a politician respected across the country's spectrum of factions, called on Houthi forces to stop advances on cities and heed a U.N. Security Council demand for an end to fighting. Baha's comments, made during a visit to the Yemeni embassy in Saudi Arabia on Monday, coincided with air strikes by a Saudi-led alliance on Iran-allied Houthi fighters, intensified fighting and reports the humanitarian situation was worsening. The Houthis have rejected the resolution, which imposes an arms embargo on the group and on supporters of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and demands the Ansarullah group drop its weapons and quit cities, including the capital Sanaa, it captured since September. Other Yemeni news websites, including barakish.net, also carried the remarks. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/TaF6WG9SsII/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com
