Topic: Yemeni Houthis call on U.N. to end Saudi strikes: statement


Yemeni Houthi rebels called on the United Nations on Saturday to seek an end to Saudi Arabian air strikes against them that they described as blatant aggression against the country. "We want to emphasize the grave and tragic situation that comes in the light of the continued Saudi blatant aggression on our country and our people," said the Ansar Allah Zaydi Houthi movement's foreign relations official Hussein al-Ezzi, in a letter addressed to the U.N. secretary general. Zaydis are a sect of Shi'ite Islam that predominates in Northern Yemen. The United Nations says the conflict in Yemen has killed 600 people, wounded 2,200 and displaced 100,000 since Houthi rebels allied with Iran seized the capital Sanaa in September.
