Jordan agrees to host Yemen talks about prisoner exchange

Jordan says it has agreed to host UN-brokered negotiations between Yemen's warring sides about a prisoner exchange.
The kingdom's Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that Jordan accepted a request by the special UN envoy for Yemen to host the talks but did not say when they would be held.
Yemen's four-year war pits Houthi militia against an internationally recognized government supported by a Saudi-led coalition. In peace talks in Sweden last month, the sides agreed to a series of confidence-building measures, including an exchange of thousands of prisoners.
Implementation has been slow, marred by violence and ongoing distrust between the sides.
Last week, a Houthi drone attack on a military parade in the southern port city of Aden killed seven people, including the government's military intelligence chief.
