a. Ukraine
b. Yemen
c. Syria
d. Nigeria

From now a five-member council would act as the president for an interim period. The situation in Yemen escalated last month when the Houthis seized a key aide of President Hadi, in an attempt to block a draft constitution. They later took the presidential palace and other key buildings, prompting Mr Hadi's resignation. Yemen has been riven by instability since protesters inspired by the Arab Spring forced the overthrow of President Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2011, who is believed to have been backing the Houthis.
