Yemen's Houthis ready to hand over Saleh's body to family

В Йемене убили бывшего президента

"We invite the aggressor states to end their aggression and blockade and to engage in serious dialogue with the Republic of Yemen.to bring about security and stability", Sammad said.

From the Saudi capital, Riyadh, where he has been in self-imposed exile for most of the war, Hadi tried on Monday to rally Saleh's allies to keep up the fight against the Houthis.

Analysts said Saleh's death would be a huge morale boost for the Iran-aligned Houthis, since Saleh had switched sides by abandoning the Houthis in favor of a Saudi-led coalition.

Mattis said he did not believe the USA military would play a role in easing the humanitarian situation.

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. Speaking to reporters by phone from Sanaa, he said that "at the same time, people are bracing themselves for more".

Bessho said the 15-member council was deeply concerned about the sharp escalation in violence as well as "the dire and deteriorating" humanitarian situation in Yemen.

The rebels killed Saleh on Monday, days after he broke off his alliance with them against a Saudi-led coalition.

The commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, praised what he called the Houthis' swift quashing of the "coup against the holy warriors", the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

The Arabian peninsula's poorest country, Yemen is one of the most violent fronts in a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, who have also backed opposing sides in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere across the Middle East.

On Wednesday, several dozen women gathered in a main Sanaa square holding Saleh's portrait and demanding his body be handed over for burial, but they were forcibly dispersed by Houthi security forces, eyewitnesses said.

It's not clear how many civilians are among the dead.

Saleh on Saturday announced the end of his alliance with the Houthi rebels, with whom he has jointly ruled the capital for three years.

The U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, added that Houthi claims on Sunday they launched a missile at Abu Dhabi demonstrated "how destabilizing this war is for the region and how the Iranian regime is exploiting the war for its own political ambitions".

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. The Saudi-led coalition battling the rebels had thrown its support behind Saleh just hours before his death, as the longtime strongman's alliance with the rebels unraveled.

Saleh's slaying likely gives the rebels the upper hand in the dayslong fighting for the country's capital, Sanaa.
