As the conflict continues to worsen in Yemen the UN Security Council on Tuesday tightened measures against rebels who are trying to take over the country.

The Houthis, who occupied the capital Sana'a and seized power early this year, continue to fight with government forces.

A coalition, led by Saudi Arabia began air strikes against the Houthi in March at the invitation of the Yemeni government.
