The U.S. ambassador to Yemen blamed on Thursday the Iran-aligned Houthi movement for the stalling of a U.N.-led peace deal in the main port of Hodeidah and said the group's weapons pose a threat to regional countries.
Yemen's warring parties have failed to leave the main port city of Hodeidah three months after agreeing to a breakthrough U.N.-led truce deal as part of efforts to end a four-year-old war that has pushed the country to the brink of famine.
A spokesman for Yemen's internationally recognized government says recent comments by the country's rebels that they won't give up the key port city of Hodeida, the focus of months of U.N.-brokered talks with the government, amounted to a "declaration of war."
The German government must ensure any support provided by a U.S. military base in Germany for U.S. drone strikes in Yemen complies with international law, a German court ruled on Tuesday, handing a partial victory to critics of such strikes.
