250 Killed in 3 Days of Yemen Clashes

Fighting in central Yemen between Houthi fighters and a tribe in the town of Radda has killed at least 250 people in the last three days, security officials said Monday.
The Houthis — a political and religious rebel group named after a former commander, Hussein Badr al-Din al-Houthi — captured Sanaa on Sept. 21 after weeks of anti-government protests focused on fuel price rises. The group signed a power-sharing agreement with other political parties soon afterward, a deal that was sanctioned by President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. But this has not deterred the Houthis from pushing into other parts of the country. Their leaders say they want a more representative national government that can combat corruption and secure the country, according to Aljazeera.
The violence in Yemen’s Bayda province saw fighters from the influential Qifa tribe force the Houthis out of a part of Radda, said officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to journalists.
