UN envoy set to leave Yemen


United Nations – The UN envoy for Yemen, Martin Griffiths, 69, who has been in line for a senior role at the UN since April, is expected to leave his current post, sources said.

Huthi rebels recently refused to meet with the British diplomat, who has held the position since 2018, raising doubts as to whether he could continue his work as Yemen’s mediator.

The war, which has lasted for years, pits Huthi rebels against the Yemeni government, backed since 2015 by Saudi Arabia.
