Last Friday, resigned president Abd-Raboo Mansour Hadi appeared for the first time in a “selfie” picture taken in his house with a youth group who shared the photo on social media.

Meeting with political delegation representatives at his house, Hadi confirmed that he would not reconsider his resignation.

Hadi’s  resignation came a few hours after former Prime Minister Khalid Bahah announced his own resignation in protest of the Houthi coup. Houthi militants are now left to face the Yemeni population, forced to take responsibility for their actions, which led to the resignation of the government.
