Yemen's Shi'ite rebels offer truce to Saudi Arabia

Yemen's Shi'ite rebels on Monday offered a ceasefire to Saudi Arabia and said they would withdraw from the kingdom's territory to avoid more civilian casualties, after three months of border fighting and Saudi air strikes.
"To avoid more bloodshed and to stop aggression on civilians ... we offer this initiative," Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said in an audio recording posted on the Internet.
Houthi said if Saudi Arabia did not end its hostilities in return, the rebels would wage "open war" on the world's top oil exporter. MORE HERE
