Talks in Yemen between political parties, rebels break down

Sanaa: Talks between Yemeni political parties and the Shiite rebels who occupy the capital have broken down, with several main factions calling for renewed protests against the rebels.

An official with the leadership of a party present at the meeting says the Islamist Islah party pulled out of today's talks along with the Socialist and Nasserite parties.

The official says the group rejects dialogue with the rebels, known as Houthis, and calls for peaceful protests against them.

The parties also demand the release of a group of 11 activists and journalists the Houthis detained earlier in the day.

Officials with the office of UN envoy Jamal Benomar say he is continuing efforts to forge an agreement between Yemeni political forces.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information otherwise.
