Pro-Houthi protesters attack Saudi military spokesman in London.
During an event organized by the European Council on Foreign Affairs in London, the military spokesperson for the Saudi-led coalition to restore the legitimate government in Yemen was attacked by pro-Houthi protesters by eggs and then physically. A source in Riyadh confirmed Maj. Gen. Al-Assiri suffered no injuries and that he went on delivering his speech as planned. During the talk Al-Assiri apologized for the delay and described the pro-Houthi protesters as people “who don’t know the difference between protesting and attacking”. Moreover the protester who physically attacked the spokesman claimed he was placing Al-Assiri under “citizen’s arrest” for what he described as “war crimes” in Yemen.
