Hundreds took to the streets of Yemen’s capital Sanaa and the southern port city of Aden on Sunday to protest a liquidity crunch that has prevented authorities from paying salaries for the past three months.

Security forces loyal to the anti-government Houthi rebels dispersed dozens of protesters in Sanaa. They also maintained a heavier-than-usual presence throughout the capital in anticipation of renewed protests.

Yemen has been in the midst of a civil war since September 2014, when the Houthi rebels captured Sanaa, forcing President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi to eventually seek refuge in Saudi Arabia.
