Yemen's Shiite Houthi rebels Monday confirmed carrying out a prisoner exchange with Saudi Arabia and said they were open to negotiating a peace deal with the Saudi-led coalition that has been fighting them for a year.The war pits the Houthis, who control the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, against an internationally-recognized government largely confined to the southern city of Aden. The government is backed by a loose array of militias as well as the coalition of mainly Gulf Arab countries.Earlier Monday, an Emirati fighter jet suffered a "technical malfunction" and crashed near Aden, killing the plane's two pilots, the state-run Saudi Press Agency said.
