Sectarian violence spikes in northern Yemen

Fighting continues between Shia Muslim Houthis and Sunni Salafists leading to fears of an all out sectarian war.

    Sectarian violence is on the rise in Yemen, after more than a hundred people were killed in the fighting between Shia Muslims known as the Houthis and Sunni Salafists.

    Fighting continues unabated, despite repeated government efforts to broker a ceasefire. There are now fears that an all out sectarian war will erupt, a year after Yemen saw its president overthrown in a popular uprising and as the country continues to fight separatist rebels in the south.
