  • Yemen ex-president Abdullah Saleh killed

Former Yemeni President Ali Saleh, who was killed by the Houthi rebels, was buried on Wednesday without great solemnities, media reported.

Council members called for all parties "to immediately provide safe, rapid, unhindered and sustained commercial and humanitarian access" to all affected people through all of Yemen's ports and airports, especially Hodeida port and Sanaa airport.

The rebels killed Saleh on Monday, days after he broke off his alliance with them against a Saudi-led coalition.

Yemen's minister of information called upon the Houthi armed group to release the journalists and urged worldwide organisations to "leave the status of passive onlookers and take acts to press the militias to stop tormenting all the Yemeni journalists", Muammar Al- Eryani told Saba Net.

A military source said the Huthis stopped their four-car convoy about 40 kilometres south of Sanaa and shot dead Saleh and two other senior GPC officials.

The analyst also warned that if Arabs do not unite, it will not be unusual to soon witness the effects of Iranian intervention, such as the emerging of sectarian conflicts, ethnic wars, and total destruction in other Arab countries.

A Saudi-led coalition has been fighting in Yemen since March 2015, seeking to restore the ousted President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

Saleh and the Houthis used to be allies in the struggle against the government headed by President Abd-Rabbu Hadi. Witnesses said the bodies of slain civilians and fighters littered the streets as ambulances were unable to reach them.

The decision comes on the first day of the campaign for the Catalan regional elections to be held on December 21. Campaigning began on Tuesday, with polls predicting a close race between the pro and anti-independence camps.


He says that "at the same time, people are bracing themselves for more".

Clashes in the Yemeni capital have killed at least 234 people and wounded 400 since December 1, the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Tuesday. The ICRC didn't provide a toll from the near-daily airstrikes.

Steve Purbrick, MSF's coordinator in Hajja, described the attack as a "deliberate disregard for medical facilities" that endangered the lives of patients and medical staff, and compromised "the care MSF can provide in the midst of intense fighting".

But with Saleh's forces seemingly in disarray, it was not immediately clear if the Saudi-led coalition would be able to turn the split to its advantage.

Saleh's body, which had appeared in a video by the militias with a gaping head wound, was taken to a rebel-controlled military hospital.

The Houthis and Saleh's forces began fighting each other in Sanaa last week.

The bloody conflict has left impoverished Yemen as the world's leading humanitarian disasters with millions of people facing starvation.
