Yemen school defies Houthi occupation

Teachers and children continue lessons outside building in Sanaa after Houthi gunmen deny them access to classrooms.

    Some schools have failed to reopen in the Yemeni capital following a nine-day suspension brought on by concerns over security.

    In one northern district of Sanaa, children found tanks and army trucks inside their school and Houthi gunmen denying them access to classrooms.

    But the children and their teachers have decided not to give up and have continued with lessons outside the building.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall reports from Sanaa.
