Yemenis denounce rebel advance on Sanaa
 
 
 

SANAA - Hundreds of Yemenis protested outside the presidential residence in Sanaa Saturday over what they say is the authorities’ inaction over a Shiite rebel advance on the capital. The demonstrators, some from Amran province north of the city where Huthi rebels, also known as Ansarullah, are clashing with the army, chanted ‘Stop the Huthi advance. ‘I think the Huthis have taken to arms so they can take territory from Saada province to Amran, and I suspect they also want to enter Sanaa itself,’ said one protester, Nadia Abdullah.
Some demonstrators accused Shiite Iran of supporting the rebels, while others said they suspected former president Ali Abdullah Saleh was arming them ‘so he can overthrow President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi’.
