Human Rights Watch official reports on Yemen crisis

Belkis Wille, a Human Rights Watch researcher based in Yemen says an aide to Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi says the exiled Yemeni President is willing to sit for peace talks in Geneva with Shia rebels. Meanwhile, Yemeni citizens are dealing with a desperate humanitarian situation, including a lack of food, medicine and electricity. Willie says she is also concerned about serious human rights violations taking place, including the use of child soldiers, kidnappings and bombing raids by Saudi Arabia that are killing numerous innocent civilians.
