The mountainous province of Saada is the stronghold of the Shi'ite rebels, known as the Houthis after the clan of their leaders, who had fought government forces for years until an uprising against former President Ali Abdullah Saleh last year gave them a free hand in the lawless frontier province. Trying to counter the threat of al Qaeda, Washington is deepening its involvement in Yemen, using drone strikes to target suspected militants and training the Yemeni army to fight them. The tribal gathering was held to denounce what they say is a U.S. interference in Yemen.
