Yemeni protesters held a mass rally in Sanaa on Tuesday to show support for the Houthi movement on the fourth anniversary of a war that has killed thousands of people and pushed the country to the brink of starvation.
The Iran-aligned Houthis have controlled the capital Sanaa and Yemen's largest populated areas since 2014 when they ousted the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
The United Nations is pushing ahead with tough talks with the Houthis and the Saudi-backed government to find a political solution to the conflict.
Men, women and children marched waving the red, white and black national colors, and chanted slogans against Saudi Arabia, which leads a military coalition against the Houthis, and the United States which backs it.
They also blamed US ally Israel for destroying the country.
