Press TV has conducted an interview with Colin Cavell, an author and lecturer from West Virginia, to discuss foreign intervention in Yemen’s internal affairs, especially by Saudi Arabia.

Cavell believes that, since the resignation of fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who was a Saudi “puppet,” Riyadh has been trying to revive its hegemony in Yemen and to weaken the democratic Houthi Ansarullah movement through funding terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda.
