-

Sanaa: Tens of thou­sands of Shia rebel ac­tivists demon­strated in the Ye­meni cap­i­tal Mon­day heed­ing a call by their leader to press their cam­paign to oust the gov­ern­ment in de­fi­ance of the UN. The show of strength by the Zaidi Shia rebels caused traf­fic jams on sev­eral ma­jor roads in Sanaa. In a speech late on Sun­day, rebel leader Ab­dul­ma­lik al- Huthi called on sup­port­ers who have

been man­ning armed protest camps in the cap­i­tal for the past week to con­tinue their cam­paign to top­ple

the na­tional unity gov­ern­ment, from which the rebels

are ex­cluded.
