UN Warns of Rising 'sectarian Tensions' Without Yemen Govt

Sunday, 02 Nov 2014 09:23 AM

The UN envoy to Yemen urged political rivals in the restive Muslim state to form a new government within days to head off rising "sectarian tensions", in an interview with AFP on Sunday.

Jamal Benomar voiced hope that a new government would be formed "within a few days", following weeks of clashes pitting Sunni tribes and Al-Qaeda against Shiite rebels seeking to expand their territory.

"Failure to pursue this would mean an increase in sectarian tensions" between Sunnis and Shiites in the country, he warned.
