Report: Diplomats submit plan to reunite Yemen army

DUBAI - Six world powers and the United Nations have proposed a plan to reunite Yemen's fragmented military in a drive to reduce chaos in the impoverished nation after months of unrest, pan-Arab daily al-Hayat reported on Thursday.
A fragile ceasefire between troops loyal to nominal Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh and fighters allied with the opposition is taking hold, but a planned military withdrawal from the capital Sanaa will put the truce to the test.
Saleh handed his powers last month to Yemeni Vice-President Abd-Rabou Mansour Hadi after signing a Gulf-brokered deal that led to the formation of a national unity government tasked with preparing for presidential election on Feb. 21.
