UN chief calls for halt to Yemen violence

UNITED NATIONS, United States, Nov 2, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday called for a halt to violence in Yemen to pull the country back from a “precipice” and build momentum toward talks on ending the war.

“First, violence must stop everywhere — with an immediate halt around critical infrastructure and densely populated areas,” Guterres told reporters at UN headquarters.
