Sanaa: Yemen`s parliament on Sunday again postponed an extraordinary session which had been due to discuss President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi`s offer to resign, state news agency Saba reported.

Parliament "has decided to postpone an emergency meeting set to take place on Sunday... to another date which will be decided later to make sure all members are informed to attend," the news agency said.

Hadi, a key US ally in the fight against Al-Qaeda, submitted his resignation to parliament on Thursday plunging the country into chaos after a deadly standoff with Shiite militia in control of the capital.
