The Houthi rebels called for the demonstrations to be held today, while still surrounding the homes of the president and government ministers in the capital Sanaa.

The Houthis have controlled Sanaa and other areas of the country since September.

Yesterday, President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, a US ally, resigned after Houthi rebels held him captive in his own home.

The prime minister and his cabinet also stepped down with Mr Hadi.

Yemen’s parliament is scheduled to hold an emergency meeting on Sunday over the resignations.
