Houthi supporters demonstrate against the air strikes in Sana'a on August 24. The northern-based Houthis, a Shia Muslim group, took control of Sana'a in September 2014. Arab countries intervened in the conflict in March to halt a Houthi advance into the south which caused the Saudi-backed government to flee to Riyadh from its refuge in the southern port of Aden. Photo: Khaled Abdullah/Reuters
