Yemen: Iranian embassy set ablaze as Houthis clash with Saleh loyalists

Smoke was seen billowing from the Iranian embassy in Sanaa on Monday after it was reportedly struck by a rocket shell, as battles between Houthi fighters from Ansarallah and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh intensify. No casualties have yet been reported. It is currently unclear which party was behind the attack on the building, and whether it was hit intentionally or by... Еще accident. On Sunday, at least 60 people were killed in battles between Houthi fighters from Ansarallah and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The two groups have fought together against the Saudi-led coalition, which intervened in Yemen in March 2015 in a bid to reinstate the government of ousted President Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi. In October, the Saudi-led coalition imposed a blockade on Yemen, following an intercepted missile attack on Riyadh, for which Houthis claimed responsibility.
