Yemeni rebels release a captured Saudi soldier


Northern rebels in Yemen handed over a captured Saudi soldier to Yemeni government mediators, the latest sign that a six-year-old conflict is calming down.

The Saudi Press Agency quoted Saudi ambassador to Yemen Ali al-Hamdan as saying the soldier was brought from the northern province of Saada, the rebel stronghold, to the embassy in San’a by helicopter. He will be sent back to Saudi Arabia later, the ambassador said. AP
