    Talks resume in Kuwait on ending Yemen war: UN envoy

    May 4, Kuwait City: Peace talks to end the war in Yemen resumed Wednesday in Kuwait, U.N. envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said. 

    Ahmed said on Twitter the talks began after all sides in the conflict agreed to form a committee to look into what happened in the governorate of Amran, which reportedly came under attack by Yemen's Shiite rebels.

    That attack had halted the talks in Kuwait City earlier.

    Yemen's internationally recognized government, backed by a Saudi-led military coalition, is fighting the rebels known as Houthis who seized the capital, Sanaa, in September 2014. The Saudi-led forces entered the conflict in March 2015.
