Houthis take over US-trained special forces base in Yemen capital

“Armed men from Yemen’s newly dominant Houthi group took over a special forces army base in the capital city of Sanaa early Wednesday, soldiers there said. The troops at the base had been trained and equipped by the United States as an elite counterterrorism unit during the rule of former President Ali Abullah Saleh, who was ousted by Arab Spring protests in 2011, military sources told Reuters.”
