Yemen's president and Shiite militia reached a nine-point agreement Wednesday under which the militia are to withdraw from government buildings in return for concessions over a draft constitution, state media said.
The Huthi militia vowed to vacate the presidential palace, seized on Tuesday, and to free President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi's chief of staff as part of a deal also agreed by other factions, said Saba news agency, which published the text of the document.
In return, it will now be "possible to amend" a draft constitution stipulating the division of Yemen into six federal regions that the Huthis opposed, the agency said.
