TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Yemen's President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi ordered a panel to draw up a constitution that would transform Yemen into a six-region federation, state media reported, despite opposition in the north and south. The 17-member panel, which includes four women, is expected to implement a decentralization plan agreed at a national conference last year to create four regions in north Yemen and two in the south.
