Yemen's President accuses Iran of backing Houthis

Yemen's President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi on Saturday accused Iran of offering support for the Shiite Houthi opposition in his country for the first time since a political crisis engulfed his poor restive country almost three weeks ago.

During a meeting with dignitaries from 22 Yemeni provinces in the capital, Sanaa, Hadi said Houthis received support from four satellite channels funded by Iran and broadcast from the Lebanese capital, Beirut, according to the official Yemeni news agency.
