US imposes sanctions on network funding Yemen's Houthis, says US Treasury

 WASHINGTON: The US Treasury on Thursday imposed sanctions on what it said are members of a smuggling network that produces millions of dollars for Yemen's Iran-affiliated Houthi militia.

"This network generates tens of millions of dollars in revenue from the sale of commodities, like Iranian petroleum, a significant portion of which is then directed through a complex network of intermediaries and exchange houses in multiple countries to the Houthis," a Treasury statement said
