Watching the Yemeni coup d’état–from inside the presidential palace!

 
Journalist Peter Salisbury explains how he was caught in the Yemeni presidential palace when Shia Houthi militias organized a coup d’état in late 2014. He left the building to find new checkpoints, and saw the militias banner was everywhere ——including directly outside the U.S. Embassy–reading “God is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam”.
