Thousands of Shi'ite Muslim Houthis staged a rally in the capital Sana'a on February 2nd to show solidarity with the Houthi movement's decision to grant Yemen's political factions a three day ultimatum to pull the nation out of its political vacuum.
The protesters said political factions have only two days left to reach an agreement, otherwise the Houthi leadership would take matters into his own hands and form a presidential committee to govern Yemen for an interim period.
