US: Kerry warns Iran against supporting rebels in Yemen

  • John Kerry, the US secretary of state, has warned the Iranian government over its alleged support for the Shia Houthi rebels in Yemen.

    He said that the US would not merely “stand by” if Iran were to destabilize the region, and America would back any country feeling threatened by Iran.

    Kerry’s remarks come as the US steps up its military support to the Saudi-led coalition, which is targeting rebel positions in Yemen.
