"Yemen's National Dialogue Conference has agreed a document on which the new constitution will be based. President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi will reveal details of the rival political, tribal, religious and social groups' vision for a new political system at the end of the conference on Saturday. It is believed to include dividing the country into a number of regions that enjoy semi-autonomy."
