Warring Groups in Yemen May be Ready for Compromise (AUDIO INTERVIEW)

Government forces and secessionists have reached an accord, and one expert notes that even some Houthi rebels are showing signs of moderation

Yemen, mired in a lengthy civil war, has long been described as a human catastrophe in the making. Indeed, it is estimated that more people – especially children – have died from hunger or illness than from the fighting itself, with many, many more citizens in acute danger of suffering the same fate.

Yet there are signs that disparate groups, be they Iran-backed Houthi rebels or secessionists seeking a return to two Yemens, or even the Saudi leaders of a coalition that has been waging war on behalf of the semi-ousted government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour-Hadi, are tiring of the conflict and even retreating from hardline positions that have long stoked the flames.

To learn more, The Media Line spoke with April Longley Alley, deputy program director for the Middle East and North Africa with the International Crisis Group, and a specialist on Yemen.
