ISLAMABAD, Pakistan ó Pakistanís parliament voted unanimously Friday to remain neutral in the conflict in Yemen, a major blow to Saudi Arabia as it seeks to build support for its offensive against the surging Houthi rebels there.

The parliamentís decision came after five days of debate in which lawmakers expressed major concern that Pakistanís 550,000-man army could become entangled in an unwinnable conflict.
