Attack on Shiite Hospital, Demonstrations in Sanaa


A rebel field hospital has been attacked in Yemen, northeast of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa. The attack coincided with a demonstration in the capital against its occupation by Shiite militants.

According to Yemeni security, a suicide bomber killed and wounded scores of people when he detonated a car laden with explosives into a hospital run by the Shiite Houthi rebel group around 100 miles northeast of the capital of Sanaa.

For months, the Houthis have been engaged in battles with rival Sunni militant groups and have used the field hospital to treat their wounded fighters.

The Shiite minority Hawthis—also spelled Houthi and Huthi—recently swept through the north of Yemen and entered the capital in a bid to overthrow the government, which they deem corrupt.
