Houthis Celebrate ‘Friday of Victory’

Thousands of supporters of Houthi rebels in Yemen have taken to the streets to celebrate their first Friday since taking control of much of the capital, Sanaa.

Houthis, who have besieged Sanaa for a month, seized key state installations earlier this week without any resistance.
They have hailed the day as the “Friday of victory”.
An Al Jazeera correspondent reporting from Sanaa said there were no signs of security forces and military troops where the Houthis rallied.
The correspondent said Houthis had reached within close proximity to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi’s residence, although it was believed that Hadi had already moved out of it.
An agreement to end the fighting was mediated by the UN and signed on Sunday, shortly after Houthis took control of most of the city.
Hadi has so far failed to name a new prime minister, although the latest agreement stipulated that one should have been appointed by Wednesday.
He has already appointed two advisers, one representing the Houthis, and another for southern separatists, as required under the peace deal.
