Yemen Gov't Suspends Talk Participation05/02 06:13

   KUWAIT CITY (AP) -- The United Nations envoy for Yemen says the country's 
government delegation has suspended its participation in peace talks aimed at 
ending fighting in the impoverished Arab country.

   U.N. envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed said in a statement that the Yemeni 
government stopped participating in plenary sessions held in Kuwait on Sunday 
because of developments in the governorate of Amran, which reportedly came 
under rebel attack.

   The statement says he has received assurances from the warring parties that 
they are committed to resolving difference without participating in joint 
sessions, and that the U.N. hopes to resume the talks.

   The closed-door talks aim to end fighting between a Yemeni government backed 
by a Saudi-led military coalition on one side and rebels known as Houthis who 
seized the capital in September 2014.
