Yemen's Houthis form government, in setback to peace process | Reuters

SANAA Yemen's armed Houthi movement and its political allies formed a new government on Monday, Houthi-run state news agency Saba reported, in a blow to U.N.-backed efforts to end nearly 20 months of war in the country.Diplomats had hoped the group, which controls the capital Sanaa, would hold off on putting together a cabinet of their loyalists and instead form a unity government with their Yemeni foes, whom they pushed into Saudi exile.
