Yemen's warring parties are set to travel to Switzerland to discuss prisoner releases.


The two delegations, which had been meeting in Jordan, are flying to Switzerland on Wednesday for week-long talks to finalise a deal on prisoner releases, a UN source said on Tuesday.

Mohammed Abdulsalam, chief negotiator of Yemen's national salvation government, said the committee was set to leave Sana'a on a UN plane.

The Yemeni government and the Saudi-backed resigned regime of Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi are trying to reach an agreement to end a years-long war and ease a humanitarian crisis in the Arabian Peninsula''s poorest country.
