Description

Yemen’s Ansarullah says Saudi Arabia has freed 40 of the movement’s fighters as part of a truce deal. Ansarullah Spokesman, Muhammad Abdussalam, said 20 of the prisoners had been captured inside Yemen. The development comes as Yemen’s peace talks are underway in Kuwait. U-N Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, said the warring sides had productive talks and key issues were discussed during the negotiations. However, he said obstacles still remain despite progress in the talks. Early on Saturday, Yemen’s Ansarullah movement held talks with representatives of the Saudi-backed former regime in a bid to end the conflict in the country. Yemen has been the scene of a deadly war, imposed by Saudi Arabia, for over a year now. More than 94-hundred Yemenis have lost their lives so far.
