Yemen's Houthis protest for more rights

Members of Shia group march in capital calling for more say in country's future and new national security service.

    Thousands of members and supporters of a Shia rebel group based in northern Yemen have protested in the capital Sanaa. The Houthis want more of a say in the country’s future, starting with a new security service.

    The demonstrations came a day after security forces fatally shot at least two members of the group and wounded 30 others during a protest against a security branch accused of abuses.
