Al-Houthi says Yemen's Saleh killed for treason

Al-Houthi says Yemen's Saleh killed for treason

Qatar's Emir Tamim bin Hamad attempted to mediate to end the tension between the two conflicting forces loyal to Ali Abdullah Saleh and Houthis in Sanaa.

A Houthi media official, Abdel-Rahman al-Ahnomi said Houthi fighters killed Mr Saleh as he tried to flee to Saudi Arabia though the province of Marib, to the east of the capital.

The Houthi-run Masirah TV announced the death of the "leader of the traitors" on Monday, referring to Saleh, who until last week was in a fragile alliance with the rebels.

Graphic video shared on social media showed the body of Saleh being carried in the back of a pick-up vehicle.

Emotions were certainly running high for Rivers and he let his frustrations get the best of him while the cameras were on him. He added that he's "sorry for using profanity" but was "sticking up for my teammate, bottom line".

Residents in the capital of Sanaa mired in the humanitarian catastrophe said that they had witnessed the explosion at Saleh's home.

The Saudi-led coalition started attacking in Yemen in 2015 in a bid to restore the official government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi after the Houthis forced him into exile.

The apparent shift in position came as Saleh's forces battled Houthi fighters in Hadda, a district in southern Sanaa where members of Saleh's family, including his nephew Tareq, live.

The Houthis' political office on December 2 accused Saleh of staging a "coup" against "an alliance he never believed in".

Ngannou had made a statement: he was the clear number one contender in the UFC's heavyweight division. Stopping Andrei Arlovski in his last outing, he'd take a step up against another veteran in Overeem.

Hadi's forces, trying to take advantage of the collapse of the alliance, announced they would march on Sanaa. Iran supports the Houthis but denies arming them.

The country descended into a wider civil war that has killed more than 10,000 people while drawing in a Saudi-led military coalition, backed by the United States. But he recently switched his alliance to Saudi Arabia, which has led a three-year bombing campaign against the Houthis in Yemen and implemented a blockade of Yemeni ports.

"Ambulances and medical teams can't access injured, people can't buy food and other supplies", UNICEF's Rajat Madhok said on Twitter.

The 75-year-old Saleh had previously ruled Yemen for more than three decades after the country's unification but was toppled in 2012 after popular and political pressure during the so-called Arab Spring.
