Death Toll from Battles in Yemen’s Capital Rises to 234

SANA’A – At least 234 people have been killed and another 400 injured in fighting between Houthi rebels and forces loyal to the slain Yemeni former president, the International Committee of the Red Cross told EFE on Tuesday, doubling the previously announced number of victims.

Ali Abdullah Saleh was killed on Monday after turning against his onetime Houthi allies in an apparent bid to align himself with the Saudi Arabia-backed central government.

Residents of Sana’a, who had been trapped in their homes during the fighting, surveyed the burnt vehicles and other signs of fighting, as documented by an epa photojournalist.

With the Houthis in control of Yemen’s capital, the city was quiet after five days of clashes and airstrikes.

The secretary general of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, on Tuesday condemned Saleh’s killing, asserting that “Houthi militias are terror groups that have control over citizens by gun.”

“The assassination of Saleh in this way reveals, to everyone, the criminal and dehumanized nature of those militias (Houthis), who are the main cause of destruction in the country,” he added.

The United Nations humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, on Monday had called for a “humanitarian pause” by the warring parties on Tuesday.
