Role of UAE in Yemen is worse than of Iran, Tawakkol Karman says 

The Nobel Peace laureate Tawakkol Kerman has again attacked the United Arab Emirates, pointing out that the UAE plays a very worse role in Yemen.

This came in response to an editorial by the UAE Gulf newspaper that indicated that nobody could question the pivotal role played by the UAE as part of the Saudi-led Arab coalition, and that the military intervention in Yemen was basically aimed to rescue Yemen from the coup d'état carried out by the Iranian-backed Houthi group. 

"You are worse than Iran and your militias are no less ugly than the Houthi militia," she said addressing the newspaper, emphasizing that Yemenis have already reached this conviction.
