Shia Houthi rebels are stooges of Iran, says Yemen's president

  • Yemeni president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi has alleged that Iran is destabilizing Yemen, and described the Shia Houthi rebels as “stooges of Iran".

    His blunt remarks came as the Saudi Arabia-led air attacks in Yemen continued for a fourth night.

    Saudi Arabia has said its military campaign in Yemen would go on till the country becomes "stable and safe".

    With other nations also supporting the Saudi campaign, Yemen has become a battleground for behind-the-scenes maneuvering between Sunni Arab countries and Iran, the key regional Shia power.
