AFP , Saturday 2 Dec 2017

Yemen's Houthi rebels Saturday accused ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh of staging a "coup" against their fragile alliance, after the strongman said he was open to talks with the Saudi-led coalition fighting them.

"Saleh's speech is a coup against our alliance and partnership ... and exposed the deception of those who claim to stand against aggression," a Houthi spokesman said in a statement carried by the rebels' Al Masirah TV.
