Saudi Arabia imposes naval blockade on Yemeni Houthis

Saudi Arabia has imposed a naval blockade on northern Yemen's Red Sea coast "to stop weapons" from reaching Yemeni Houthi it is fighting in the area, a Saudi government adviser said on Wednesday.

Last week, Saudi Arabia launched an offensive against the Houthis after they staged a cross-border raid during which they seized Saudi territory, accusing the kingdom of colluding with the Yemeni government against them.

The rebels, who are known as the Houthis after the clan of their leader and say they suffer religious, economic and political marginalisation, said on Tuesday they had seized more Yemeni territory along the Saudi border.
