Rebels release Yemeni PM Bahah from house arrest

Yemen’s Prime Minister Khaled Bahah said Shiite rebels, who overran the capital, Sanaa, and placed him, the President and the entire government under house arrest, have released him from the forced detention.

Mr. Bahah resigned while he was being held by the rebels known as Houthis.

Mr. Bahah on Monday in a posting on his Facebook page described his release as a goodwill gesture meant to “push the political process in a positive direction.”

Mr. Bahah said he is now leaving Sanaa to visit his family elsewhere.
