Ali Abdullah Saleh killed by Houthis trying to flee Yemen's Sanaa

File Ali Abdullah Saleh who was President of Yemen for decades and once compared governing the country to

Media Advisor to the Yemeni Supreme Political Council, Ahmed al-Habishi, announced Monday that former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has been killed in the area controlled by UAE air force.

"The Interior Ministry announces the end of the crisis of militias and the killing of their leader and a number of his criminal supporters", an anchor from Houthi-affiliated Al-Masirah television said, referring to armed supporters of Saleh.

A video circulating online purported to show Mr Saleh's body, his eyes open but glassy, motionless with a gaping head wound, as he was being carried in a blanket by rebel fighters chanting "God is great" who then dump him into a pickup vehicle.

The Saleh-Houthi alliance had been fraught since its inception in 2014, when the two ended decades of enmity and joined ranks to capture Sanaa from Hadi's government.

Saleh also called for a joint ceasefire between his allies and Houthi rebels, and the Saudi-led coalition, which has been at war with the impoverished country since March 2015.

A Houthi media official, Abdel-Rahman al-Ahnomi said Houthi fighters killed Mr Saleh as he tried to flee to Saudi Arabia though the province of Marib, to the east of the capital.

Saleh had on Saturday issued his message to the Saudi-led coalition in a speech broadcast from the studios. Iran supports the Houthis but denies arming them.

The fighting in the capital of Sanaa caused residents to cower in their homes as explosions rocked the city overnight. But he recently switched his alliance to Saudi Arabia, which has led a three-year bombing campaign against the Houthis in Yemen and implemented a blockade of Yemeni ports.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo and General Manager Jerry Reese have been fired , the National Football League network reported Monday. You're out of the playoffs and you've won two games. "I don't like it, but I get it in a sense".

Saleh ruled for 33 years before being toppled in 2012 during popular protests.

The rebel alliance splintered last week, setting off heavy clashes between the Houthis and Saleh's forces.

The stalemated war has killed more than 10,000 civilians and displaced 3 million. He remained in the country, however, and continued to wield power from behind the scenes. "Ambulances and medical teams can not access the injured and people can not go outside to buy food and other necessities", Stephane Dujarric, a United Nations spokesman in Yemen, said in a statement on Sunday.
