Britain pulls troops from destabilising Yemen

Anti-Houthi protesters run as pro-Houthi police troopers open fire in the air to disperse them in Yemen's southwestern city of Taiz.

BRITISH Special Forces (SAS) were evacuated from Yemen this weekend as a result of the deteriorating security situation in the country and gains made by al Qaeda supporters.

Some British SAS troops were pulled out of the country with US forces this weekend. The country has suffered some serious setbacks in the last few weeks, divided between Iranian-backed, Shia rebels, known as Houthis, in the north and the official president, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in the south.

The Houthis have now taken control of the country’s capital city, Sana’a, and at least six major provinces. Perhaps 150 people were killed in bomb blasts in the capital last week.
