#AceWorldNews – YEMEN – September 11 – Yemen’s government and Shiite Muslim Houthi rebels signed an agreement Thursday to end a crisis that has seen weeks of protests, Reuters said.

Houthi demonstrators have been blocking the main road to the capital Sanaa’s airport and holding sit-ins for weeks at ministries in an attempt to oust the government and restore fuel subsidies.

A member of the government’s negotiating team said that the agreement includes a further reduction of fuel prices and the formation of a new government.
