Concerns Deepen in Yemen With Killing of Former President Saleh
Wednesday, 6 December 2017 03:17 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The United Nation's envoy for Yemen is due to brief members of the Security Council on Tuesday, a day after rebels killed the country's former president and their former ally, Ali Abdullah Saleh, and following a spike in violence in the capital with the dissolution of their alliance.

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters he expected envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed to discuss the political implications of Saleh's killing.

"It obviously adds an extreme level of complexity to already a very difficult political situation," Dujarric said. He reiterated that the world body stands ready to broker a negotiated halt to the conflict that has left 10,000 people dead and millions in desperate need of humanitarian aid in Yemen since 2014.

The U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, called for a humanitarian cease-fire on Tuesday to allow civilians to seek assistance.

"The streets of Sana'a city have become battlegrounds and people are trapped in their homes, unable to move out in search of safety and medical care and to access basic supplies such as food, fuel and safe water," McGoldrick said in a statement.
