Yemen’s Hadi re­jects UN peace plan

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Yemen’s pres­i­dent has re­jected a UN peace pro­posal for his war-bat­tered coun­try, as air strikes by his Saudi-led coali­tion al­lies killed at least 47 rebels, in­mates, and civil­ians. Forces loyal to Pres­i­dent Abedrabbo Man­sour Hadi’s gov­ern­ment have been locked since 2014 in deadly bat­tles with Iran-backed Shi­ite Huthi rebels who over­ran the cap­i­tal Sanaa late that year. The con­flict es­ca­lated in March 2015 when Saudi Ara­bia launched a mil­i­tary cam­paign to push back the rebels.
