Yemen Shiite militia shelling kills 15

Yemeni gunmen loyal to the Shiite Huthi movement guard a checkpoint in Sanaa, on October 30, 2014At least 15 people, including five women, have been killed in shelling by a Yemeni Shiite militia targeting a mainly Sunni district, local officials and tribal sources said Friday. Yemen has been rocked by growing instability since the Shiite fighters, known as Huthis, seized control of the capital Sanaa in September. The Huthis have expanded their presence throughout the strife-torn nation in the face of fierce resistance from Sunni tribes backed by Al-Qaeda’s powerful Yemeni branch. Heavy Huthi shelling of a northern district of the central town of Rada killed five women late Thursday and displaced thousands, witness Jaber al-Zuba told AFP by telephone.
