Yemen's Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi said Thursday his group could target Saudi oil tankers should Saudi Arabia attack Yemen's main port at Hodeidah.Abdel-Malek also said that they had successfully test-fired a missile toward Abu Dhabi earlier this month and said the UAE was no longer a safe country.The United Nations had proposed that the Red Sea port of Hodeidah, where 80 percent of food imports arrive, should be handed to a neutral party, to smooth the flow of humanitarian relief and prevent the port being engulfed by Yemen's two-year-old war.Hadi's government accuses the Houthis of using the port to smuggle in weapons and of collecting custom duties on goods, which they use to finance the war.
