Islah party names representatives to Yemen dialogue

World Bulletin / News Desk 

Yemen's Al-Islah Party has named four leading members – all held by Shiite Houthi armed groups – as its representatives to the ongoing UN-sponsored national dialogue.

In a statement, the Muslim Brotherhood-linked party said it had named resigned Industry and Trade Minister Mohamed al-Saadi – who is also Al-Islah's deputy secretary-general – and three other members as its representatives to the dialogue.

Al-Saadi has been under house arrest by the Houthi members for weeks while the three other members were kidnapped by the Shiite group after its gunmen stormed a party office in Sanaa earlier this month.

Earlier this month, UN envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar initiated dialogue between Yemeni political forces in a bid to mediate a way out of the country's political crisis.

For more than one month, resigned Prime Minister Khaled Bahah, and several members of his cabinet have been detained in their respective Sanaa homes by the Houthis.
