In Yemen, the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition has intensified its bombing campaign following the killing of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. He was killed earlier this week by Houthi rebels after he switched sides in the ongoing war and threw his support to the Saudi-led coalition. The Saudi-led coalition has launched dozens of airstrikes against the Houthis in the capital Sana’a today.
