Yemen's parliament swore in the Houthi-led governing council on Sunday. The action removes the power and legitimacy of the internationally recognized but exiled president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government. The armed Houthis and their ally, Yemen's General People's Congress, led by former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, control the capital Sanaa. After the swearing-in ceremony, the head of the new council called on all countries to re-open their embassies and missions in the Yemeni capital.
