Thousands attend Yemen pro-government rally

Demonstrators call for an end to Houthi rebellion, as sectarian rhetoric divides country.

    In a show of support for the government, thousands of people have rallied in Yemen's capital denouncing rival protests.

    Demonstrators slammed the Shia Houthis for fostering recent unrest, as sectarian rhetoric divides the country.

    The Houthi-led rebellion is calling for the resignation of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, and a greater share of power for their movement in the federal government.
