Topic: Yemen Houthis take over special forces army camp in Sanaa

Armed men from Yemen's newly dominant Houthi group took over a special forces army camp in Sanaa early on Wednesday after overnight fighting, sources in the camp said. Houthi militiamen seized the capital Sanaa in September and laid siege to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's residence last month, prompting his resignation and leading to a political vacuum. The clashes in the army camp in Sanaa, which lasted around six hours, started late in the evening on Tuesday when Houthis shelled the camp with heavy weaponry, soldiers from the camp said. The power struggle between the Muslim Shi'ite Houthis in Sanaa and Hadi in Aden casts more doubt on United Nations-sponsored talks to resolve Yemen's crisis peacefully, and exacerbates sectarian and regional splits which may plunge the country into civil war.
