Fistfight erupts at Yemen peace talks in Geneva

(Reuters) A fistfight erupted on the sidelines of peace talks in Geneva on Thursday between supporters of different warring factions in Yemen, underlining the divisions that have thwarted United Nations efforts broker a truce in the near three-month conflict.

Yemeni opponents of the Houthi forces that drove the government into exile interrupted a news conference by Houthi officials, throwing shoes and insulting them as "criminals" and "dogs" who were "killing the children of south Yemen".

That's nothing. Palestinians throw each other off the rooftops when their internal peace talks break down.
