A delegation of Yemeni rebels left the capital Sanaa for Geneva on Sunday to attend repeatedly delayed peace talks, an aviation official and a source close to them told AFP.
The delegation of five rebel representatives, including Shiite Huthis and members of ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh's party, departed aboard a UN plane, the sources said.
Two other Huthi representatives were also heading to Geneva from neighbouring Oman, the source close to the Huthis added.
