From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Saudi-led coalition blitzes Sanaa as revenge raids kill hundreds

Wednesday 6th December 2017

THE Saudi-led coalition blitzed Yemen’s capital Sanaa overnight in apparent revenge for the killing of former president [dictator] Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Jamie McGoldrick of the UN OCHA aid agency said at least 25 air strikes had hit the city and “people are bracing themselves for more.”

Red Cross official Robert Mardini wrote on Twitter: “The night was tough in Sanaa.” …

Mr Saleh switched his allegiance to Saudi Arabia and abandoned the Houthis.

But Houthi fighters were quick to clamp down on a pro-Saleh uprising in the capital and shot Mr Saleh dead as he tried to flee to Saudi Arabia on Monday.
