Tens of thousands of Yemeni Houthis protest against govt in capital

SANAA (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Yemenis demonstrated in the capital Sanaa on Friday in a protest called for by the Shi'ite Houthi movement, which wants the government to resign and reverse a decision on cutting fuel subsidies.

Earlier this week, the Houthis mobilized tens of thousands of supporters in Sanaa and warned they would resort to "legitimate pressure tactics" if authorities did not comply with their demands by Friday.
