Houthis prevented from attending Geneva peace talks - Yemen Houthi TV

DUBAI (Reuters) - Yemen’s Houthi movement said on Wednesday its delegation was prevented from flying to attend United Nations-sponsored peace talks in Geneva, the group’s al-Masirah TV reported.

Al-Masirah said the United Nations could not secure required authorisations from the Saudi-led coalition which controls Yemen’s airspace.

The Saudi-led coalition could not immediately be reached for comment, while the U.N. Special envoy’s office did not respond to Reuters request for comment.
