Slain ex-Yemeni President Saleh buried without solemnities

Saudi Arabia continues to bomb Yemen's Sana'a despite calls for humanitarian ceasefire: UN

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

The extent of Iranian support to the Houthis has been debated, but the USA and Britain have assisted the Saudi-led coalition with intelligence and refueling support for its airstrikes.

Witnesses say that fighting has subsided in the Yemeni capital Sanaa hours after the announcement of the death of Yemen's former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

A video by Yemen's Houthi rebels allegedly shows the slain body of the country's former leader Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Air raids also struck northern provinces including Taiz, Haja, Midi and Saada, the rebel-owned channel said, although there was no immediate word on casualties.

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

Saleh's oldest son meanwhile pledged in a declaration sent to Reuters to fight the Houthis and liberate all territory held by the rebels. Saleh's forces were key to helping the Houthis overrun Sanaa in 2014, and then much of the north and center of the country.

Faiqa al-Sayyid, a leader in Saleh's General People's Congress (GPC) party, said Saleh "was martyred in the defence of the republic".

Saudi Arabia continues to bomb Yemen's Sana'a despite calls for humanitarian ceasefire: UN

A council press statement Tuesday after a closed briefing and discussions with United Nations special envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed made no mention of Monday's killing of Yemen's former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and others.

The coalition bombed Saleh's residence and other houses of his family members, Yemen's pro-Houthi al-Masirah television station said. It gave no further details. Armed men could be seen loading the body into the back of a pick-up truck in an empty, sandy lot.

Saleh was forced to step down in 2012 after his forces waged a bloody crackdown on peaceful Arab Spring-inspired protests calling for his ouster. He remained in the country, however, and continued to wield power from behind the scenes.

The ICRC said on Tuesday that another 400 people have been wounded in the clashes, which first erupted last week as the alliance between the rebels and Saleh's followers crumbled.

Few local media reports have stated Houthi rebels had gained control of the majority of the country's capital from Saleh's forces.

"Aid workers can't travel and implement critical life- saving programmes".

There are expectations in Yemen that Maj Gen Saleh will now return to Yemen to lead a battle against the Houthis to take revenge for the killing of his father.

On Wednesday, the Saudi coalition stepped up airstrikes against Houthi positions as the rebels tightened their control on Sanaa.
