Arab Gulf countries threw their support behind Yemen's embattled president Wednesday as the group's chief visited Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi amid the Houthis' power grab in the capital, Sanaa.Hadi's top aides said the Gulf Cooperation Council's secretary-general, Abdel-Latif al-Zayani, visited the president in Aden, days after he escaped to the city. The Houthis have warned foreign diplomats and state employees against viewing Hadi as Yemen's legitimate leader. They also have arrested politicians trying to reach Aden. Abdullah Noaman, the leader the Nasserist party – one of Yemen's main political parties – was held at Sanaa airport by Houthi rebels, a party official said. The U.S. military trained and kitted out Yemeni soldiers under former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and under Hadi the CIA has stepped up drone strikes aimed at killing suspected militants.
