Biden weighs up returning Houthis to US terror list
President Joe Biden says the US is considering restoring its designation of Yemen’s Houthis as a terrorist group.
The Houthis, a militia group that now controls much of Yemen, claimed responsibility for the recent attack that killed three people, which Emiratis say used both missiles and drones, and started fires at a fuel depot and international airport.
The Houthis have used drones and missiles to attack Saudi Arabia and oil targets in the Arabian Gulf over the course of Yemen’s war.
Biden officially delisted the Houthi militia as a “foreign terrorist organization,” a designation put in place by his predecessor, Donald Trump.
