As recently as September, President Obama was pointing to Yemen as a model for the U.S.'s counter-terrorism strategy. But now, the country -- which is home to one of Al Qaeda's most powerful branches -- is being torn apart in a violent sectarian conflict, led by an anti-American rebel movement, known as the Houthis. With the Yemeni president ousted from the capital, and Saudi Arabia leading a coalition of regional forces against the Houthis, FRONTLINE in conjunction with BBC Arabic brings this special report from inside the war zone. Who are the Houthis -- and what does the chaos and instability mean for the region, the U.S., and the global fight against terrorism? Continuing FRONTLINE's on-the-ground coverage from Yemen, reporter Safa Al Ahmad was granted extremely rare access to the Houthis as they advanced. She has been one of the few reporters for a Western news organizations on the ground, and in The Fight for Yemen, she delivers a dramatic look at the conflict as it has been building.
