NYT Defends Houthis: ‘Reassuring’ that ‘Death to America’ Slogan Isn’t Literal

‘That’s just a slogan’

Houthis take U.S. vehicles, weapons in Yemen (CNN)

Houthi rebels took all U.S. Embassy vehicles parked at the Yemeni capital's airport and wouldn't let departing U.S. Marines take their weapons with them, a top Sanaa airport official said about the latest evidence of unrest in an Arab nation long seen as key in America's fight against terrorists.

The actions come after the United States, along with Britain, suspended operations at their embassies and moved out staffers because of the instability in Yemen.

According to the official, the Houthis seized many U.S. Marines' weapons at the airport, and the American troops also handed over some to random airport officials.
