Houthi rebel militiamen seized control of the Yemen president’s palace


Presidential guard troops were seen leaving the palace. The exact location in the capital where the President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Had is was not known. The most senior Houthi leader, Abdel Malik Al-Houthi, gave a televised speech saying that this action was a warning to President Hadi, rather than an attempt to depose him. However, rebels issued a set of requests expecting to be solved. The most important negotiations are on a draft new constitution. Yemen it’s not now a secure space for residents. At least eight people dead on Monday in Sana. Houthi rebel militiamen are opposing Al Qaeda but at the same time they disallow the strong American influence on Yemen’s government. A United States diplomatic vehicle in Sana came under fire Monday evening at a Houthi checkpoint near the embassy.
