Yemen’s ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh Killed in Sanaa: Sources

Former President of Yemen Ali Abdullah Saleh has been killed in the country’s capital Sanaa, according to his assistant and a statement issued by his General People’s Congress Party.

As of yet unverified photos and video footage circulated by on social media show men hurling a corpse of what looks like Saleh onto a pickup truck.

Saleh was reportedly killed by Houthi rebels, who were once his supporters, after he had offered the Saudi-led coalition which backs Yemen’s president Abd Rabbou Mansour Hadi to “turn a new page” last week. The Houthi militia considered the offer an act of ‘treason’.

Last week, tension erupted between Houthi rebels and their former allies, forces loyal to Saleh.

This story is developing.
