Egypt blocks Geneva-bound Yemen plane from entering airspace

Egypt blocks Geneva-bound Yemen plane from entering airspace

The plane carrying the delegation of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement to attend the UN-brokered talks in the Swiss city of Geneva has not arrived in its destination yet due to Egypt's refusal to allow them enter its air space.

The delegation left the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, on Sunday afternoon, but was forced to have a long stop in Djibouti, Press TV reported.

Egyptian authorities have reportedly not allowed the plane to cross its airspace due to the Saudi pressure.
