Saudi-led coalition says Houthi fighters to be evacuated on Monday

CAIRO (Reuters) – Fifty wounded Houthi fighters will be evacuated for treatment to Oman’s Muscat in a plane belonging to the United Nations, the Saudi-led coalition said early on Monday.

The coalition said the move was a bid to build confidence between the warring parties in Yemen ahead of Sweden negotiations.
