SANAA (Reuters) - Fighters from Yemen’s armed Houthi movement blew up house the house of ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the centre of the capital Sanaa on Monday, residents reported, as his whereabouts remain unknown.
His loyalists have lost ground on the sixth day of heavy urban combat with the Iran-aligned Houthis, his former allies in nearly three years of war with a Saudi-led military coalition.
