Yemen: Houthi fighters roam Sanaa streets with tanks and arms after Saleh's fall

Smoke fills the air as fighters from Ansarallah, also known as the Houthis, continue to gain grounds through the Yemeni capital Sanaa from former President Ali Abdullah Saleh's forces on Monday. Earlier in the day the fighters attacked Saleh's home claiming that the former president had been killed while attempting to flee to Maarib from the capital Sanaa. Unverified footage released from... Еще Khawlan, just outside of Sanaa, appeared to show a dead body resembling Ali Abdullah Saleh after the Houthis' announcement. Since Sunday, at least 125 people were killed in battles between Houthi fighters from Ansarallah and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The two groups have fought together against the Saudi-led coalition, which intervened in Yemen in March 2015 in a bid to reinstate the government of ousted President Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi. In October, the Saudi-led coalition imposed a blockade on Yemen, following an intercepted missile attack on Riyadh, for which the Houthis claimed responsibility.
