Biden considers restoring terror listing of Yemen’s Houthis
US leader faces criticism over failure to address terrorist violence. On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden said that he is considering re-designating Yemen’s Houthi militia as an international terrorist organization days after the Iran-backed group made another attack that killed three people.
Biden delisted the Houthi militia as a “foreign terrorist organization,” a designation put in place by his predecessor, Donald Trump.
Asked if he would redesignate the Houthis as a terrorist group, Biden replied: “It’s under consideration.”
