Shiite Huthi militiamen wearing uniforms confiscated from the Yemeni army stand near a government tank in the area around the presidential palace in the capital Sanaa, on Jan. 22, 2015. Shiite militiamen maintained a tight grip on Yemen's capital today with fighters deployed around the presidential palace despite a deal to end what authorities termed a coup attempt. President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi's abducted chief of staff remained in the hands of the Huthi militia, which seized control of most of Sanaa in September after sweeping south from its stronghold in the northern highlands.
