Former President Ali Abdullah Saleh has been killed in fighting with the Iran-aligned Houthi militia raging in the Yemeni capital Sanaa.

The 75-year-old was killed outside the capital Sanaa, along with the assistant secretary-general of his General People’s Congress party (GPC), party officials confirmed. 

Sources in the Houthi group said fighters stopped Saleh’s armoured vehicle with a rocket-propelled grenade-launcher as he was fleeing the capital, and then shot him dead.
