Yemen's embattled president has reached a peace deal with Shia Houthi rebels occupying key points in the capital Sanaa.

President Mansour Hadi's office said major concessions had been offered to the rebels, who took over his palace and surrounded his home.

They will play a bigger political role while a new constitution they opposed may be amended.

The rebels are expected to release Hadi's chief of staff in return.

There was no immediate confirmation of the deal from the rebels.
