The head of the Yemeni government delegation at troubled peace talks in Kuwait demanded action from UN mediators Thursday over rebel shelling of besieged third city Taez.The Houthi Shiite rebels countered that it was pro-government forces that were stoking the violence in Taez in a bid to avoid holding serious negotiations on a political settlement.Mikhlafi said his negotiators had submitted proposals to UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed for implementing an April 11 ceasefire in Taez, where loyalist troops have been under rebel siege for months, trapping tens of thousands of civilians.Taez lies on one of the fault lines of the conflict that has raged since March last year between the rebels and the government and its allies in a Saudi-led military coalition.
