Talks in Yemen Break Down              01/25 11:55

   SANAA, Yemen (AP) -- Talks between Yemeni political parties and the Shiite 
rebels who occupy the capital have broken down, with several main factions 
calling for renewed protests against the rebels.

   An official with the leadership of a party present at the meeting says the 
Islamist Islah party pulled out of the Sunday talks along with the Socialist 
and Nasserite parties.

   The official says the group rejects dialogue with the rebels, known as 
Houthis, and calls for peaceful protests against them.

   The parties also demand the release of a group of 11 activists and 
journalists the Houthis detained earlier in the day.

   Officials with the office of U.N. envoy Jamal Benomar say he is continuing 
efforts to forge an agreement between Yemeni political forces.

   All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not 
authorized to release the information otherwise.
