Death of former Yemeni president confirmed, his son reportedly captured by rebels

Death of former Yemeni president confirmed, his son reportedly captured by rebels”

Saleh has accused the Huthis of seeking to monopolise power and the rebels have accused the strongman of treason over his suspected contacts with Saudi Arabia.

The Huthis quickly hit back, accusing Saleh of staging a "coup against our alliance".

Yemenis in the war-torn country's capital crowded into basements overnight as Saudi-led fighter jets pounded the positions of Houthi rebels, who are now fighting forces loyal to a former president for control of the city.

Officials of Saleh's General People's Congress (GPC) party said he had been killed outside the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.

Multiple images and videos of what appeared to be Saleh's dead body were posted to social media sites, though could not be immediately confirmed.

Footage of Saleh showed Houthi fighters unfurling a blanket containing the corpse and shouting, "praise God!" and "hey Ali Affash!", another last name for Saleh.

Reports in Iranian media and Al Jazeera, based in Qatar, also claimed that the leader had been killed.

Florida hires Dan Mullen as next football coach
Running backs coach Greg Knox has been selected as State's interim head coach for the Bulldogs' pending bowl game. The Gators fired former coach Jim McElwain last month amid reports of a personality conflict with administrators.

It was a grisly end for a figure who was able to rule the impoverished and unstable country for more than three decades and remained a powerhouse even after he was ousted in a 2011 Arab Spring uprising.

The Interior Ministry, affiliated with the Houthis, said that Houthi-allied security forces are carrying out raids and arrests at the homes of Saleh's associates and supporters. "However, I don't feel that his death will greatly impact the war, as he had recently split with the Houthi forces as he tried to end the Saudi blockade, which undermines any argument that he held sway with the Houthi leadership".

Yemen has since been rocked by rebel infighting. The rivalry between Riyadh and Tehran, which has increased significantly in recent months, has exacerbated the conflict in Yemen.

Almost one million people have been infected by cholera in Yemen this year, including more than 2,200 people who have died, according to the World Health Organization.

"Fighting is restricting the movement of people and life-saving services within Sana'a city".

More than 15,000 people have been killed, roughly half of them civilians, according to the United Nations.

Iran supports the Houthis politically but denies that it has helped to arm the rebel group.
