Yemen rebels and government complete prisoner exchange

Yemeni rebels and government forces have freed scores of prisoners, including a woman, on the last of a three-day exchange of more than 800 detainees, boosting hopes of ending their protracted war.
Five flights carrying nearly 200 detainees from both sides flew between the Houthi rebel-held capital of Sanaa and the government-controlled northern city of Marib.
The operation “concluded successfully” on Sunday, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said.
The ICRC said this brought the number of prisoners freed over the three days to 869 under a deal agreed to in Switzerland last month.
