Yemen troops to deploy at Saudi border
Sanaa, February 18, 2010
Yemeni troops should start to deploy along the Saudi border from Saturday in line with a truce deal with Shi'ite rebels fighting both the Yemeni and Saudi governments, a member of a committee overseeing the truce said on Thursday.
"We expect that the engineering teams will complete the removal of mines on Friday, and expect that the army will deploy on the border with Saudi Arabia starting from Saturday," the committee member told Reuters.
He added that the next phase of the truce would include freeing Yemeni, Saudi and Shi'ite rebel prisoners. – Reuters
