UN Security Council to hold emergency meeting on Yemen

The United Nations Security Council was set to meet in emergency session Sunday evening to vote on a resolution demanding that Shiite rebels relinquish control of Yemen’s government, as Arab countries pressed for the use of military force against what they call the rebel group’s “illegitimate seizure of power.” A takeover by the Houthi rebels has put the Arab world’s poorest country in danger of collapse and raised alarms that the world’s most dangerous branch of al-Qaeda, based in Yemen, would use the chaos to its advantage. The Houthis and the militant Sunnis of the al-Qaeda branch are bitter rivals.
