GENEVA (Reuters) - Yemen peace talks originally slated for Jan. 14 will not happen on that date but may be held a week or more later, U.N. spokesman Ahmad Fawzi told a regular U.N. briefing in Geneva on Tuesday.

"The 14th was mentioned as a date but I don't think it's on the table any longer," he said. "I don't think the 14th is a viable date any longer. (The U.N. special envoy to Yemen) is looking at a date after Jan 20," he said.
