Yemen rebel leader to Saudis: Let's 'turn the page'

The Saudi-led coalition responded to Saleh's statement saying that it recognised the efforts of his General People's Congress (GPC) political party to rid Yemen of the evils of "sectarian terrorist militias", Saudi state media reported.

The coalition has been fighting to defeat the Iran-backed Houthis along with Mr Saleh's forces in Yemen since March 2015.

"I call on our brothers in neighbouring countries.to stop their aggression and lift the blockade. and we will turn the page", Saleh said.

The two groups have been fighting the government of current President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, who is backed by the Saudi-led coalition, for almost three years.

Once allies, rebel Houthi fighters and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh have now turned against each other.

Friday, bitcoin was trading near $10,100 before the news broke, and jumped above $10,650 afterward, according to CoinDesk. Nasdaq Inc also plans to list a futures contract based on bitcoin in 2018, Reuters reported earlier this week.

The remarks came after Saleh supporters battled Houthi fighters for a fourth day in the capital Sana'a as the two sides traded blame for a rift between allies that could affect the course of a fight against the invading Saudi regime.

The clashes between Saleh's supporters and the Houthis underscore the complex situation in Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the Middle East, where a proxy war between the Iran-aligned Houthis and the Saudi-backed Hadi has caused one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in recent times.

"I call on our brothers and the Arab coalition to halt their aggression, allow access to medical and relief aid, open airports and we will turn the page", Saleh said in a televised speech.

"We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough", he added.

There was no immediate word on casualties.

United slowly grew into the game, although they struggled to link up with Romelu Lukaku. Both teams went close just before half-time.

The United Nations released a stern warning on Friday to the Saudi-led coalition of the catastrophic consequences associated with not fully lifting the blockade on Yemen, and UN leaders on Saturday issued a joint statement calling for the full lifting of the blockade.

In 2011, Yemen fell into chaos after an uprising deposed Saleh.

In a statement on Saturday the Saudi-led coalition praised Saleh for "taking the lead" in the conflict.

The United Nations has warned that the country faces mass starvation unless the Saudi-led coalition allows more food aid to enter the impoverished country.

The head of the Houthi's Ansarullah group, Abdel-Malek al-Houthi, has described Saleh's change of heart as "sedition", and appealed to him to show more wisdom and maturity. He fought six wars against the Huthis when he was president, but joined forces with them to take over the capital in 2014.
