200 Houthi rebels arrested in Saada
[16/December/2009]


SAADA, Dec. 16 (Saba) - Security authorities have arrested in the past few days about 200 members of rebel al-Houith loyalist sleeper cells in the old city of Saada, the military-run 26sep.net has reported.

During his inspection visit to security sites in Sa'ada city, the First Undersecretary of Interior Ministry Mohammed al-Qawsi has said that the some of the rebels have surrendered themselves.

During the visit, al-Qawsi has met with security officers and soldiers in the sites and talked with them over many security issues in the city.

A few days ago, al-Qawsi has said that 25 members of al-Houthi sleeper cells in the city were handed themselves up to the security services and they have been sent to the competent authorities, according to the 26.sep website.

Since fighting erupted in 2004, thousands of people, soldiers and insurgents have been killed in Saada province, which located close to border with Saudi Arabia, after the rebel group was founded by rebel leader Hussein al-Houthi.

Hussein, the eldest brother of the current group leader Abdul-Malik, was killed by the army in September 2004.

The Yemeni government accuses the Houthi group of trying to reinstall the rule of imams, which was toppled by a republican revolution in northern Yemen in 1962.
