Does anyone else find this just plain weird?
"The Yemen State Security Court sentenced the political leader of Al Houthi armed rebellion, Yahya Al Houthi, to 15 years in prison on Saturday.

"The court's Judge Mohsen Alwan, considered Al Houthi, who is currently living in German, as fugitive from justice and tried him in absentia.

"Yahya Al Houthi, brother of the top rebel's leader Abdul Malek Al Houthi, is accused of forming a militia to overthrow the current republican system and to restore the royal clerical rule by force."

That crime sounds like it would merit a much longer sentence.
