Saudi Arabia and its adversaries in Yemen's armed Houthi movement are holding secret talks to try to end a 3-year-old war that has unleashed the world's worst humanitarian crisis, diplomats and Yemeni political sources said.Speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, two diplomats and two Yemeni officials said the Houthi spokesman Mohammad Abdel-Salam had been in direct communication with Saudi officials in Oman on a finding comprehensive solution to the conflict.Neither Saudi nor Houthi officials provided an official comment.U.N.-backed peace talks between the Houthis and the Yemeni government were last held in Kuwait in August 2016 .Two Hadi government officials contacted by Reuters were unaware of the dialogue, and their criticism of the coalition has mounted in recent days, accusing them of barring Hadi and other Riyadh-based officials from returning to the country.
