Yemen’s Southerners see hope in Houthis’ rise

Yemen's southern secessionists will revive plans for independence amid internal divisions and Houthi ascendency. According to analysts, pro-independence activists are probably right to be suspicious of the Houthis. "The Houthis are consolidating in the north, not only to serve their own interests, but to help consolidate Yemen under only one centre of power," Fernando Carvajal, a US-based Yemen analyst, told Al Jazeera. "Every actor wants and needs to rule over a unified Yemen. It is the only political solution that would give any successor [to the current government] legitimacy and authority."

They promised further 'escalation' of the kind that led to heavy fighting in the capital in September.
