Yemen peace talks delayed by ongoing combat
The rebels agreed to join the talks after receiving assurances from the UN envoy that the ceasefire in effect since April 11 would be respected by loyalist forces, the rebels' Al-Masirah television quoted Huthi representative Saleh al-Sammad as saying.
A representative of the rebel-allied General People's Congress party, Yasser Alawadi, said on Twitter that his delegation would travel to Kuwait on Thursday.
