In a TV interview on April 20, former Yemeni finance minister Dr. Seif Al-Asli criticized Houthi leader Abdel Malik Al-Houthi, saying that the Yemenis had not granted him "legitimacy to speak on their behalf." Speaking on Yemen Today TV, a channel affiliated with former president Ali Abdallah Saleh, who is allied with the Houthis, Al-Asli's remarks were punctuated by the sound of Saudi aerial bombings. As the show was wrapped up, a loud explosion shook the TV studio, sending guest and interviewer fleeing for cover.
