Yemen takes step to allow flights from rebel-held capital

Yemen’s government will permit citizens living in areas controlled by Huthi rebels to travel on Huthi-issued passports, an official told AFP, removing a barrier to long-awaited commercial flights out of the capital Sanaa.

Yemen’s embassy in Washington said on Twitter that Yemeni authorities had accepted “a UN proposal to use (Huthis’) docs on an interim basis & only during the #truce”.

There was no immediate word Friday on when the first flight would take place, though the transport minister in Sanaa said the airport was ready.
