Shiite rebels wound 17 Yemen police in ambush

Shiite rebels, known as Huthis or Ansarullah, stand on a road in Omran province north of Yemen on March 23, 2014Seventeen Yemeni policemen were wounded in an ambush by Shiite Huthis as fighting between government forces and the rebels neared the capital, officials said on Sunday. The Huthis — also known as Ansarullah — have advanced out of their northern mountain strongholds towards Sanaa in a suspected attempt to expand their sphere of influence as Yemen is reorganised into six regions. “Armed militants belonging to the Ansarullah Huthi (rebels) opened fire at security patrols carrying out their duties in the capital” on Saturday, state news agency Saba said. Militants blocked a road in Sanaa’s Al-Jarraf district, where the rebels have a representative office near the interior ministry, and fired on police patrols from surrounding buildings.
