Wounded Yemeni rebels to be treated in Oman
Yemeni officials say some 50 rebels wounded in fighting will be flown to neighboring Oman for treatment.

Their planned evacuation Monday on an Ethiopian Airways flight from Sanaa would meet one of the conditions set by the Houthi rebels to participate in peace talks in Sweden later this week. It is the latest diplomatic bid to end Yemen's civil war, which is in its fourth year.

The officials say U.N. envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths arrived in the capital Monday, where he was expected to hold last-minute talks with the rebels.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. They say Griffiths will likely leave for Sweden on Tuesday with rebel delegates.
