Yemenis celebrate Eid in uncertainty

    Yemenis are struggling to celebrate the Muslim festival of Eid after Houthi rebels seized control of the capital.

    Eid is traditionally a joyful time for families, but amid increasing fears over the economy, for many, the future looks grim.

    The Houthis seized control of most of Sanaa's state buildings, and now the defacto rulers have taken over the state's coffers.
