Video: Yemeni Houthi chief in disguise

By Staff

The leader of the Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen was caught on camera moving on a motorcycle disguised as a normal citizen.

A UouTube film posted on social networks showed Mohammed Ali Al Houthi sat behind his body guard who was riding the motorcycle.

The film showed Houthi’s head was covered with the traditional Yemeni scarf as the motorcycle cruised through the streets of the Western port of Al Hudaydah.

Bodyguards were later seen with their weapons as Houthi got off the motorcycle.

The Saudi daily 'Ajel', which also published the film, said it was shot on Sunday while the Houthi leader headed for the Presidential Palace in that city.

 Other papers said the insurgent leader was apparently fleeing coalition air raids.
