More Yemeni rebels face execution

In the continuing trials of suspected Houthi rebels, 10 more men were sentenced to death in Yemen yesterday, bringing the total of death sentences so far to 22. Six others were jailed yesterday for 15 years each.

They are among 190 defendants in a series of trials connected with fighting that occurred between March and June last year.
