YEMEN CUTS DIPLOMATIC TIES WITH QATAR

Yemen has joined Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain in cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing the latter of working with its enemies in the Iran-aligned Houthi movement, state news agency Saba reported.

“Qatar’s practices of dealing with the (Houthi) coup militias and supporting extremist groups became clear,” the government said in a statement.

It added that Yemen supported a decision by a Saudi-led coalition fighting for more than two years to oust the Houthis from the capital Sanaa to remove Qatar from its ranks announced earlier on Monday.
