Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. will designate Yemen’s Houthi rebels as a terrorist group. Aid groups warn the designation will only deepen the world’s worst humanitarian crisis by deterring outside actors from engaging with the group and carrying out essential transactions. The move could also hinder efforts of the incoming Biden administration to reestablish diplomatic links with Iran, which has ties to the Houthis.
