Saudi strikes Yemen rebels as Iran warns of ‘dangerous step’

SANAA: Warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition kept up raids against Huthi Shiite rebels on Friday in support of Yemen’s embattled president, who headed to an Arab summit to garner support as Iran warned the intervention was “dangerous.” Powerful explosions rocked Sanaa soon after rebel leader Abdulmalik al-Huthi criticized the intervention as “unjustified” and called for supporters to confront the “criminal oppressive aggression.” President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi arrived in Riyadh on Thursday, with officials saying he was on his way to Egypt to take part in a two-day Arab League summit at the weekend.
