Yemeni women protest for body of slain leader Saleh

Heavy airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition rocked Yemen's capital Tuesday, striking Sanaa's densely populated neighborhoods in apparent retaliation for the killing of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the Shiite rebels who control the city.

He said the U.N. World Food Program has 136,000 metric tons of food supplies in Yemen, and there has been a limited resumption in commercial food imports, "but this is not enough".

He said the fate of Abull Aziz Bin Habtoor, senior GPC member and prime minister of the Saleh-Houthi alliance's self-declared government, was unknown but that reports suggested the rebels had arrested him.

The U.N. Security Council called on all sides to de-escalate the upsurge in violence and re-engage with U.N. political efforts to achieve a cease-fire without preconditions.

Although the blockade later eased and showed signs of breaking on Wednesday, Yemen's situation remained dire.

Dujarric said humanitarian flights, including by the United Nations and the Red Cross, resumed to Sanaa Tuesday morning.

On Monday, Houthis killed Saleh, a former ally, and moved to consolidate their grip on Sanaa after day of clashes.

Saleh's son Salah said on Facebook Tuesday that he won't receive condolences for his father's death until "after avenging the blood" of the former leader. He was killed by the rebels on Monday, leaving his followers in disarray.

There are expectations in Yemen that Maj Gen Saleh will now return to Yemen to lead a battle against the Houthis to take revenge for the killing of his father. A spokesman quoted Aboul-Gheit as saying the global community should label the Houthis a "terrorist" organization.

Saleh had helped the Houthis win control of much of the country's north, including Sanaa, and his decision to switch allegiances and abandon the Houthis in the past week was the most dramatic change on the battlefield in years. The Anadolu Agency quoted sources, as saying, that the mortar shell triggered the fire at the embassy premises.

- Houthi rebels hold over 40 journalists hostage in Yemen.

Speaking before a gathering of supporters, al-Houthi says: "We knew that they were deceived. we hadn't hoped for what happened".

The Saudi-led military coalition fighting the armed Houthi movement in Yemen's civil war started a blockade of ports a month ago after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired toward its capital Riyadh from Yemen.

The killing of Yemen's ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the country's Shiite rebels as their alliance crumbled has thrown the almost three-year civil war into unpredictable new chaos.
