Yemen’s ex-Pres. killed in Sanaa clashes


Yemen’s ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh was killed on Monday during fierce clashes with Houthi militias in the capital Sanaa, Arabiya Net reported.
Arabiya Net quoted sources from Yemen’s General People’s Congress as confirming that their leader Saleh was killed by Houthi militias in Sanaa.
A video showed Saleh lying on a blanket surrounded by Houthi militias celebrating his death. The short clip aired on a pro-Houthi television channel appears to show Saleh had sustained a head injury, potentially a gunshot wound, it said.
Earlier in the day, militias from Yemen’s armed Houthi movement blew up the house of Saleh in the center of the capital Sanaa on Monday, it added.
The latest development comes only one day after Saleh urged Yemenis to revolt against Houthi militias, and offered dialogue with neighboring countries.
