A peace deal between Houthi rebels and government loyalists in Yemen appears to be in jeopardy.

The Houthis have taken control of government buildings and a radio station in Sanaa – and a major army base north of the capital.

Al Jazeera’s Mohamed Vall, reporting from Sanaa, said that a “slow-motion coup” is taking place in the capital.

“By the end of day, we will probably see the capital Sanaa fully in the hands of the Houthis,” our correspondent said, adding that the rebels are marching toward the army headquarters.

Also on Sunday, the prime minister tendered his resignation in a statement in which he criticised the president’s performance in this crisis and for not participating fully in the national dialogue process. Al Jazeera
