Yemen's ambassador to the United Nations is asking the international community to quickly intervene with ground forces to save the country from Houthi rebels who have been targeted by Saudi-led airstrikes for weeks.A letter sent Wednesday to the president of the U.N. Security Council and obtained by The Associated Press also calls on human rights organizations to document what Ambassador Khaled Alyemany calls the Houthis' "barbaric violations against a defenseless population". The U.N. human rights office says at least 646 civilians have been killed in Yemen since the airstrikes began March 26 .The Saudi-led airstrikes began two days after Yemen sent the council a similar letter asking it to authorize a military intervention to oust the Houthis and asked members of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council for immediate help.
