Trump calls on Saudis to immediately end Yemen blockade

Everyone knows that it was Iranian intelligence that provided Houthi militias with Saleh's plan of action, and gave clear instructions to take him and his companions out in cold blood. He was killed by the rebels on Monday, leaving his followers in disarray.

Heavy fighting between the two factions was adding to an already dire humanitarian crisis, and while it's unlikely that the city is heading back to full calm immediately, the worst of the street fighting may be over. A spokesman quoted Aboul-Gheit as saying the global community should label the Houthis a "terrorist" organization.

Saleh's son, Ahmed, has reportedly been under house arrest in the United Arab Emirates, a key member of the coalition. The Anadolu Agency quoted sources, as saying, that the mortar shell triggered the fire at the embassy premises.

Yemeni women held rare protests in Sanaa on Wednesday, demanding that the capital's rebel authorities hand over the body of slain ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Speaking before the large rally, al-Houthi said that Saleh was "deceived... we hadn't hoped for what happened".

Meanwhile, residents said loud explosions were heard in downtown Sanaa.

Michael Flynn reportedly told a business associate that the economic sanctions against Russian Federation would be "ripped up". Copson had promoted a succession of nuclear projects created to include Russian participation dating back to the 1990s.

Dujarric, the U.N. spokesman, told reporters that U.N. special envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed told a closed meeting of the U.N. Security Council that the killing of Saleh and others was "an adverse development" that will "constitute a considerable change to the political dynamics in Yemen".

The air strikes overnight struck government buildings, palaces and bridges, and people were now bracing themselves in case of more fighting or air strikes, Mr McGoldrick said, describing the situation as "very uncertain times".

When Saleh left power, he stayed in the country and kept the loyalty of many military commanders, splitting the armed forces between himself and Hadi.

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