Coalition pounds Yemen, US says envoy met rebels

Smoke billows following an air-strike by the Saudi-led coalition on an army arms depot, now under Shiite Huthi rebel control on May 22, 2015 east of the Yemeni capital SanaaSaudi-led coalition warplanes intensified raids on Yemen’s capital Wednesday, as Washington confirmed a top US diplomat had met representatives of Iran-backed rebels to try to revive proposed Geneva peace talks. The UN Security Council appealed for a new humanitarian ceasefire and peace talks as soon as possible to end fighting that has killed at least 2,000 people since March. The 15-member council, backing an appeal by UN chief Ban Ki-moon, said in a unanimous statement it was “deeply disappointed” that the planned May 28 talks in Geneva had been put off.
