Recent events in Yemen threaten to reshape the political face of the Middle East. Supported by Iran, Yemen's Houthi rebels have seized power from the Yemeni government backed by Saudi Arabia.

Just yesterday in a potentially dangerous escalation, Iran sent warships to southern Yemen in response to Saudi led airstrikes against the Houthis.
What exactly is going on in Yemen and where is the conflict headed?
