Houthis hand Sanaa sites to Yemen military police
The handing over of the institutions took place upon request from Houthis with the aim of protecting the contents of these institutions

Yemen's military police late on Sunday started assuming control of several government institutions taken over earlier in the day by Shiite Houthi militants, local media reported.

The handing over of the institutions took place upon request from Houthis with the aim of protecting the contents of these institutions, the official Yemeni news agency said.

It added that the handing over of the institutions took place between military policemen and Houthis under supervision from Yemen's Minister of Defense Gen. Mohamed Nasser Ahmed.

Earlier on Sunday, Houthi militants controlled the Defense Ministry and Central Bank headquarters in the Yemeni capital Sanaa.

Houthis signed a deal with Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi late on Sunday to bring to an end a political crisis that had taken Yemen by storm for more than three weeks.

Houthis have been taking to the streets in the capital for more than three weeks to demand the resignation of the government and the abolition of a previous government decision to raise fuel subsidies.
