Yemen's acting leader seeks truce with tribes
SANAA (Reuters) -Yemen's acting president asked a powerful tribal federation on Sunday to abide by a truce intended to stop deadly street fighting in the capital, opposition leaders told Reuters on Sunday.
Acting President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who took over after President Ali Abdullah Saleh was wounded in a Friday attack, also offered to withdraw troops from a Sanaa neighborhood that has seen the heaviest fighting and lift roadblocks for the main routes into the capital and other cities, they said.
