SANAA, Yemen (CNN) -- Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi dismissed the government Tuesday, seeking to end weeks of tense protests in the capital, Sanaa.

Hadi also agreed to a series of economic reforms, including a 15% decrease in fuel pricing.

Tens of thousands of Houthi loyalists have been engaged in tense protests for three weeks, calling for changes.

For years, Yemen has faced violent battles against Houthi rebels.
