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.

There have been several deaths in clashes between Houthis on one side and Yemeni soldiers and local militias on the other.
