UN set to appoint new Yemen envoy

The United Nations is set to appoint former British diplomat, Martin Griffiths, as the new envoy for Yemen.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has put forward the appointment, which is expected to be approved on Thursday.

Griffiths will be charged with trying to broker peace in the country, after Ould Cheikh Ahmed steps down after three years in the role.
