ADEN- The leader of Yemen's Iranian-allied Houthi rebels, Abdel-Malek al-Houthi, accused Saudi Arabia on Sunday of trying to invade and occupy the country and bring it under its hegemony.

Saudi Arabia has led three weeks of air strikes on the Houthis, hoping to halt advances that could give the Shi'ites from the north full control of Yemen and enable Riyadh's arch-foe Tehran to expand its influence in the Arabian peninsula.
