Yemen’s Largest Separatist Group Abandons Self-Rule In Favour Of A Peace Deal

BBC: Yemen conflict: Southern separatists give up on self-ruleSeparatists in southern Yemen have given up on the self-rule they declared in April.

The separatists, the Southern Transitional Council (STC), agreed the move in an accord with the internationally recognised government.

The accord gives the STC representation in a new Yemeni government to be formed within 30 days.

It could also heal a rift in the Saudi-led coalition backing the government against Houthi rebels in the north.

The accord builds on a ceasefire between the separatists and government signed in June.
