Yemen Houthis fight for control of Arhab

Fighters target area north of Sanaa, home to country's main opposition al-Islah party, in effort to consolidate control.

    Yemen's Shia Houthi fighters have attacked an area north of Sanaa, home to the country's main opposition party, al-Islah.

    It is part of a Houthi effort to consolidate further control of the country, even after forcing a power-sharing deal with the government earlier this year.
