  • Saleh's son calls for revenge Saudi media

Since November 29, armed clashes sparked by forces loyal to Saleh, have continued against Houthi forces that are at the forefront of a retaliatory war against the Saudi-led military coalition. "We call on the Houthi rebels to immediately release the TV channel's journalists".

A Saudi-led coalition has been fighting to defeat the Iran-backed Houthis - at one point allied with ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh's forces in Yemen - since March 2015.

Hadi, who has been self-imposed exile in Riyadh in recent past years, delivered his televised speech hours after the Houthis killed their onetime ally, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

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.

ANALYSTS and commentators have rightly pointed out that killing of Ali Abdullah Saleh, the former Yemeni president, removes the country's most important political figure for four decades from a complex equation that has plunged the Arab world's poorest nation into conflict and sparked the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

They closed the ports last month after the Houthis fired a ballistic missile toward an airport in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, thereby blocking shipments of food and medicine and triggering broad global outrage.

Saleh ruled Yemen for more than three decades until he was forced to resign following an Arab Spring uprising in 2011.

The collapse of the alliance between Saleh and the rebels saw at least 100 people reported dead in fighting, accusations of betrayal and the former leader reaching out to the Saudi- led coalition.

The killing of Yemen's ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the country's Shiite rebels as their alliance crumbled has thrown the almost three-year civil war into unpredictable new chaos.

On Saturday, Saleh offered to "turn a new page" with the Saudi-led coalition if it stopped attacking Yemen and ended its crippling blockade of the country.

IATA said the forecast increase in passenger fares was in line with expected inflation. "Demand for air freight grew by 5.9% in October".

Saleh's vehicle was struck by an RPG fire on Monday and he was later shot to death, raising questions about what happens next in the almost three-year war that has killed at least 10 000 people.

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.

According to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Tuesday, more than 230 people have been killed and around 400 injured in the Yemen war since the beginning of this month. Witnesses said the bodies of slain civilians and fighters littered the streets as ambulances were unable to reach them.
