The leader of Yemen's Shiite militia, who seized the presidential palace Tuesday, has warned that "all options are open" in their action against the authority of President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi.
"All options are open in this action. We will take any measure to protect the peace and partnership agreement," signed after the northern militia overran Sanaa in September, Abdul Malik al-Huthi said.
"No one, the president or anyone else, will be above our measures if they stand to implement a conspiracy against this country," he warned in a televised statement.
