Hundreds of thousands in Yemen march in support of Houthis

Hundreds of thousands in Yemen march in support of Houthis

Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis are marching in support of the Houthi Ansarullah movement and their ally, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The Saturday march in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, was in support of a new combined governing council, Saleh announced late last month, AP reported.

Ansarullah fighters and their allies in Yemen's Army have been fighting off a Saudi war since March 26, 2015. Riyadh launched the war in an attempt to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Manosur Hadi, who has resigned as Yemen’s president but seeks to regain power.

Peace talks collapsed earlier this month, and the Saudi-led forces resumed heavy airstrikes shortly thereafter.
