Sectarian violence imperils Yemen's last Jews

About 200 remaining Mirahi Jews face a tough choice between staying or leaving their homeland amid a Houthi uprising.

    There were once thousands of Jews in Yemen, but most of them were brought to Israel between 1949 and 1950.

    These days, only about 200 remain, and they are facing a tough choice – whether to stay or leave.

    Some of them had been evicted from their villages by the Houthis, and now live as refugees in the capital Sanaa.
