Yemen crisis talks to resume Monday

UNITED NATIONS - Negotiations aimed at resolving the crisis in Yemen are set to resume on Monday and will be brokered by the UN envoy to the country, Jamal Benomar, the United Nations said.
The Gulf Cooperation Council on Saturday accused Shi'ite Houthi rebels of staging a coup in Yemen.
"The Secretary-General (Ban Ki-moon) welcomes the announcement that his Special Adviser on Yemen, Mr. Jamal Benomar, will be reconvening tomorrow the UN-facilitated negotiations in Yemen," the UN press office said on Sunday in a statement.
It added that Ban "calls on all sides to negotiate in good faith and in the spirit of compromise."
Yemen has been in political limbo since the president and prime minister resigned last month after the Houthis seized the presidential palace. On Friday, the movement dissolved parliament and said it would set up a new interim government.
