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.
