U.N. says Yemen collapsing, on brink of civil war

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United Nations warned on Thursday that while progress has been made in Yemen talks on a political settlement, the country is on the brink of a civil war and conditions are conducive to allowing al Qaeda militants to strengthen.

Al Qaeda and other Sunni Muslim militants have stepped up attacks since rival Iranian-backed Shi’ite Muslim Houthi fighters from the north seized the capital in September and started expanding across the country.
