SANAA (Reuters) - Yemen's feuding parties have agreed on a "people's transitional council" to help govern the country and guide it out of a political crisis, U.N. mediator Jamal Benomar announced on Friday.
The move follows the takeover of power by the Houthi movement, a Shi'ite Muslim militia, which led to the resignation of the president last month and the paralysis of many of Yemen's state institutions.
