Yemen Shiite rebels in deadly attack on Sunni party HQ

Yemeni boys look at a burnt car outside the local police headquarters that was attacked by suspected militants in the Ibb Governorate, in southwest Yemen on October 16, 2014Shiite rebels attacked the headquarters of Yemen’s Sunni Al-Islah party in the southwestern city of Ibb, triggering violence in which three people died, security sources said Saturday. “Two guards at Al-Islah’s office in Ibb were killed and others wounded in an attack launched late at night by the Huthis using automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades,” the source told AFP. Al-Islah, which represents Yemen’s Sunni majority tribes, has lost influence in the face of the Shiite rebellion that seized the city of Ibb last month. The Huthis, also known as Ansarullah, overran the capital Sanaa on September 21 in a surprise offensive that later saw them take control of the port of Hudeida, and the provinces of Ibb and Dhamar.
