Joint session of Parliament on Yemen crisis adjourned till 5pm



A joint sitting of the two Parliament houses has started considering whether Pakistan should join Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen against President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi or not. 

On March 26, the Saudis launched an air campaign in Yemen leading to a sharp escalation in the country’s violence.

The federal government had since then made efforts to evacuate hundreds of stranded nationals from the war-torn Yemen on the orders of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
