Yemen: Houthi attacks

Issue 976 - 05 Sep 2014 | 1 minute read

Tens of thousands of Houthi supporters massed on the outskirts of Sanaa in the second half of August to try to pressure the government to quit, and to restore fuel subsidies, news agencies said. On 2 September, President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi dismissed his government and proposed a national unity administration in a bid to halt the conflict, but the Houthis rejected his proposals. There have been several deaths in clashes between Houthis on one side and Yemeni soldiers and local militias on the other.
