Yemen: Separatists call for cooperation


Southern separatists in Yemen say they are committed to a ceasefire in the city of Aden with the Saudi-led coalition.

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Coalition pitches itself as the true power in the south, not Hadi’s government.

At least 40 people were killed in four days of fighting as the UAE-backed forces overran government bases and the presidential palace.

Now, the group is pitching itself as a natural partner to Sausi Arabia, hoping to have a greater say in the future.
