Houthi rebel leader's brother killed in Yemen

Yemen's Houthi rebel group on Friday confirmed the death of the group leader’s brother.

Ibrahim al-Houthi was "assassinated by the treacherous hands of the American-Israeli aggression," said the group's so-called Interior Ministry, referring to the Saudi-led Arab coalition.
The group vowed to “bring those involved [in the assassination] to justice so that they receive their deterrent punishment.”
No further details were disclosed regarding the incident.
Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has led a military coalition against the Houthi rebel group, which overran much of Yemen -- including the capital Sanaa -- a year earlier.
The Houthis have increasingly used drones to target southern Saudi Arabia. Recently, two drones hit the Abha airport, killing one person and wounding more than 30.
