the city counsel will meet to discuss it. nick paton walsh is the only journalist with more on how this latest violence began. >> now it began when the presidential administration concerned that after the abduction by the houthi rebel movement more officials could be detained. narrated some security measures road blocks and they have their own check point system and been here for months didn't like that. clashes broke out and we don't know who started them. it resulted in an hour-long artillery jewel around the presidential administration itself a building which cabinet minister told me if you control that, you basically control the country. residential buildings caught up and the death toll as high as nine dead and dozens injured by seize fire was always mooted from the start. talks faltered when the prime minister left that meeting, he actually had found his convoy
attacks, so did the houthi envoy unclear who the gunmen were. the ad minister said they have been taken over by the houthi and the guns fell silent about 4:30 in the afternoon. spore sporadic gunfire heard and heavy lifting needs to be done now. many sides are meeting in closed door discussions. there are suggestions they want to make it more amicable for a larger share of a power here and an exchange for that they might release the presidential chief of staff. that's what the information minister suggested. there are not just two sides, there are also those loyal to the form eraregime and this mess of violence this morning, people weren't really in control of the
militias they claim to be. unless some sort of political miracle or remarkable compromise is found, many fear we could see a return to the violence of monday morning and that could certainly bring more civilian loss of life to this capital sanaa. >> yeah the seize fire there continues to be shaky. in the meantime fresh violence hit eastern ukraine. first an explosion outside a courthouse that wounded at least 14 people. it's the latest in a series of mysterious explosions around the city. ukraine security services called the blast a quote, terrorist act and they have now launched an investigation. >> to the south of there, pro-russian separatists renewed attacks on the battle over the donetsk airport. the prime minister claimed russia sent more military equipment across the boarder to support the separatists. >> we want to give you a closer

have taken place in recent days but, bosnia and the scenes there with snowfall in recent days and milder temperatures down across the south. from 70 to 100 millimeters three to four inches have come down in the way of rainfall and been the stark opposite against northwestern england. this is across the northwest of england, snowy scenes across that region and the temperatures support it. minus three in london at this hour. winds calm so it feels like minus three but hard prezssed to the north of europe with temperatures. quite unusual to get that far down across london but here is the trend the next couple days. eight celsius the average upper 40s fahrenheit. the trend for the remainder of the week don't get close to average with monday finally getting up to 11 degrees celsius. warming trend in the long-term. want to talk about what is happening because we have high
tides taking place on coastal communities and portions of california. high tides because the sun, moon and earth coming in alignment here to allow the king tides to take place, so if you're tuned in from los angeles to san francisco and beaches of the northwest, some low-lying areas will get minor coastal flooding in place and gorgeous weather. high pressure in place. high pressure causes the air to sink and really calms the weather here so we're going to see mostly sunny skies after some morning fog from seattle to portland and your temperatures generally around 50 farenheit, ten celsius and not until friday does rain come back into the northwest picture there while season fran's morning fog gives way to afternoon sunshine in the forecast again with snienunny skies and the long-range outlook if you're tuned in an 80% chance for much of california parts of oregon to have temperatures above the norm beginning late next week even the pacific northwest in on the warmth. midwestern and central plains

there is a great growing doubt that will settle the situation. >> i spoke a little early with the specialization in arab and islamic affairs. >> the bottom line here and the reason why many people around the world are so concerned about what is happening in yemen right now is this u.s. backed government there is losing the battle with this rebel group the houthi's and leaves al qaeda free to do whatever they want. >> not exactly, john the houthis have been at war with al qaeda since day one. the original leader of the houthis was upset when they turned to the united states for help and said hey, we can do it ourselves. we can fight al qaeda and there might be a silver lining in this cloud if the houthi's take over they can take on al qaeda
without having to panlder to domestic public opinion. >> the shiites, al qaeda, soon knees and the rivalry war in islam and you believe maybe they will be more effective? >> they have always been against al qaeda and saw encroachment in the province in the north where they originated. they have been out fighting al qaeda and al qaeda has gone after the houthis for sometime now in rhetoric and the magazine and in attacks, john. so this could be a war that the united states and the west could benefit from. >> but the international dimension, the yemen government is backed by the united states and by sod did arabia and backed by iran. washington and royal, are they willing to sit back and let teheran have their way?
>> we shouldn't see this through the approximate see that we have in lebanon and syria. they are from the islam, it's a very moderate school of islam but not very close to the she ya that per pond rate in iraq and lebanon. that said we believe there has been some type of aid profit by iran to them but they should not be seen as an iran approximate see. >> the government in yemen says right now this is the beginning of an attempted coup but it seems that if they wanted to do that they could have done that in september when the fights swept into the capital and pretty much stayed there. >> that's true. they have become one of the predominant forces in the country. the government of yemen is a government in name only. he does not control all the military forces. there are still loyal to the post president.
he doesn't control many airreas in the country. they are slowly encroaching and it might be their time now to take over power completely. >> so if this government falls, do you think there is a possibility the houthi's will take over running yemen or want aton me where they control? >> that's a problem, john the houthis have come across. they are against federalization of yemen in 2013 there was an agreement to divide them. they want to keep yemen whole. that said it's not at all clear if they can run yemen on their own and not have other parties involved in that process. >> it is a complicated story with a lot of moving parts and implications for the rest of the world. so we appreciate you walking us through that. thank you. okay. we want to turn to the world economic forums. political leaders and other top
