RIYADH – A heartbroken United Nations chief on Sunday called for the "resurrection" of peace talks between Yemen's warring sides to end the suffering of civilians. Thousands of people have died in Yemen and millions are struggling to feed themselves almost two years after a Saudi-led coalition intervened to support Yemen's government and halt an advance by rebels. Seven cease-fires brokered between government and rebel forces by the United Nations have failed, while U.N.-backed peace talks have repeatedly broken down. "You know, I am a Catholic. And Catholics believe in resurrection," U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters during a visit to the Saudi capital.
