Yemen warns Iran trying to take control

The Yemeni foreign minister, Riad Yassin, calls on Arab Gulf states to become involved in Yemen in order to prevent the advance of Houthi rebels who oppose the rule of Mansour Hadi.

Yassin tells Al Jazeera that the Houthis are taking over more territory, that they already have control of airports and cities which they use against civilians in Aden and that they are arresting civilians “indiscriminately.”

Yassin earlier told al Arabiya network that the Houthi rebels seek to make Yemen surrender to Iran. He said if a solution is not found soon, Yemen will deteriorate into all-out civil war.
