Angry anti-Saudi protest in Sanaa after funeral carnage

Thousands of Yemenis demonstrated in the capital Sanaa on Sunday to vent anger at Riyadh, head of a coalition accused of carrying out air strikes that killed at least 140 people at a funeral. The protesters gathered outside UN offices in Sanaa and chanted "Death to Al-Saud," the Saudi royal family. The rally, dubbed the "Volcano of Rage", came a day after bombs hit a funeral ceremony in the capital, in one of the deadliest air strikes since the Saudi-led coalition intervened against Shiite Huthi rebels in Yemen in March 2015.
