Yemen's parliament swore in the Houthi-led governing council on Sunday. The action removes the power and legitimacy of the internationally recognized, but exiled president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government.

The armed Houthis and their ally, Yemen's General People's Congress, led by former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, control the capital Sanaa.

After the swearing in ceremony, the head of the new council called on all countries to re-open their embassies and missions in the Yemeni capital.
