Alsahwa Net-The UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths arrived in Sana’a on Monday with the aim of meeting  Houthi leaders and discuss the prisoner swap deal.

He will also meet Danish general Michael Lollesgaard, the UN observer mission  to discuss the redeploy of forces in Hodeida in conjunction with holding meeting of the prisoner committee in Jordan.

Meanwhile,  no agreement has been reached between the Yemeni government and the Iran-backed Houthi militias regarding the redeployment of forces in Hodeida, government sources told Alsahwa Net.

The United Nations had declared about an initial agreement over redeployment of forces, however that representative of both fighting sides demanded to consult their leaders.

The Yemeni government and the Houthis have agreed to exchange bodies of killed fighters as part of peace talks taking place in Jordan, according to Saudi newspaper Asharq al-Awsat.

Sources said, bodies kept in morgues will be exchanged, to be followed by cadavers from cemeteries and then others from battlefields and the frontlines.
