UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged Arab leaders on Saturday to resolve the Yemen conflict peacefully after a Saudi-led coalition launched a military intervention against Shiite rebels. "It is my fervent hope that at this Arab League summit, leaders will lay down clear guidelines to peacefully resolve the crisis in Yemen," he told the summit in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

Arab leaders gathered in Egypt Saturday for a charged summit overshadowed by the unprecedented Saudi-led offensive against Yemeni rebels and amid calls for a joint-Arab military force to confront militants.
