BC-AP Style Change Yemen Houthis,ADVISORY
Oct. 04, 2014
Effective Oct. 4, the AP will refer to the Shiite rebels in Yemen who have taken over the capital Sanaa as the Houthis, instead of Hawthis. The leader of the group's name will be spelled accordingly, as Abdel-Malik al-Houthi.
The change is being made to bring our style in accordance with common practice and closer to the Arabic pronunciation of the name.
