Tens of thousands in Yemen Shiite protest

Followers of the Shi'ite Houthi group march during a demonstration to denounce fuel price hikes and to demand for the resignation of the government in Sanaa August 18, 2014. Yemen raised fuel prices last month as the impoverished country tries to cut energy subsidies to ease the burden on its budget deficit.
