Trump will call on Saudi Arabia to end Yemen blockade

В Йемене убили бывшего президента

More than 11,000 civilians are feared to have been killed in the conflict.

Zeid said its creation "is an important step toward accountability and ending impunity for the serious violations of human rights committed by all sides in Yemen amid a worsening humanitarian crisis in the country, and ensuring justice and remedy for the victims".

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.

He added that the killing of Saleh "shows the extent of Iranian interference in the internal affairs of the Arab countries", citing that Saleh was a former president of an Arab country and a leader in a large political party in Yemen.

Houthi rebels in Yemen have held dozens of journalists captive for days at a television station in the capital and a media watchdog has demanded their immediate release. The channel had earlier carried a broadcast in which the Houthi's leader, Abdul-Malek al-Houthi, said his forces had killed Saleh for "treason".

Jamie McGoldrick, of United Nations aid agency OCHA, said civilians in Sanaa are "emerging from their houses after five days being locked down, basically prisoners", to seek safety, medical care, fresh water and other survival needs.

He says that "at the same time, people are bracing themselves for more".

McGoldrick said aid providers like OCHA were "locked down in basements or in compounds" during the fighting.

Without mentioning Saleh by name, he said that he knew about Saleh's communication with the coalition and his efforts to turn against the Houthis.

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 protest lasted less than an hour before rebel forces violently dispersed it with batons.

Steve Purbrick, MSF's coordinator in Hajja, described the attack as a "deliberate disregard for medical facilities" that endangered the lives of patients and medical staff, and compromised "the care MSF can provide in the midst of intense fighting".

Saudi Arabia, accusing Iran of backing the rebels, intervened in Yemen on behalf of the government the following year.

In other areas like Fag Attan, Saleh's forces are still surrounded by Houthis.

Photos and Videos of the brutal assassination went viral on social media, shortly after announcing his death by the rebel militia.

The bloody conflict has left impoverished Yemen as the world's leading humanitarian disasters with millions of people facing starvation.
