World - Former president defiant as humanitarian toll mounts in Yemen war

By Mohamed Mokashaf ADEN (Reuters) - Yemen`s former president Ali Abdullah Saleh said on Friday he would not leave the country, dismissing reports in the Gulf Arab media that he was seeking a safe exit as Saudi Arabian war planes bomb troops loyal to him and their Houthi militia allies. The United Nations, meanwhile, said about 150,000 people had been driven from their homes by three weeks of air strikes and ground fighting and more than 750 people killed. The Iran-allied Houthis, a Shi`ite Muslim movement from northern Yemen, have formed an alliance of convenience with Saleh, who is widely believed to be plotting behind the scenes to make a comeback on Yemen`s tumultuous political scene. The person who can say to Ali Abdullah Saleh `leave your country` has not been and will not be born,` he wrote on his Facebook page.

World - Former Yemen president Saleh says will not leave country

Former Yemen president Ali Abdullah Saleh said he would not leave the country in a post on his official Facebook page on Friday, contradicting reports in the Gulf Arab media that he sought a safe exit. The person who can say to Ali Abdullah Saleh `leave your country` has not been and will not be born,` he wrote. A Saudi-led alliance has been bombing Yemen`s Iran-allied Houthi rebels and army units loyal to Saleh for three weeks, fuelling speculation that he might seek a political settlement that protects him and his powerful family.

World - Tunisia blocks more than 12,000 would-be jihadists: minister

Tunisian authorities have prevented more than 12,000 would-be jihadists from leaving the country over the past two years, Interior Minister Najem Gharsalli said on Friday. Speaking to a parliamentary committee examining an anti-terror bill, he said his ministry had prevented `12,490 Tunisians from leaving Tunisian territory to travel to combat zones` in Iraq, Libya and Syria since March 2013. Since a popular uprising ousted long-time dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011, Tunisia has been targeted by jihadist violence, which has killed dozens of police and soldiers.

World - Intense Yemen bombing, Qaeda attack after UN peace call

Intense bombing by a Saudi-led coalition hit Yemen Friday, three weeks into an air war against Iran-backed rebels as Al-Qaeda seized more ground in the chaos amid UN peace calls. The facility belonged to the elite Republican Guard which remains loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Renegade troops loyal to Saleh are allied with the Huthi rebels whose sweeping advance forced President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to flee to Riyadh last month. The United Nations says hundreds of people have died and thousands of families fled their homes in the war which has also left six Saudi security personnel dead in border skirmishes.

World - Iran needs `up to 500 airliners` in next decade

Iran will need to acquire 400-500 airliners over the coming decade to renew its aging fleet, suffering from years of US sanctions over its controversial nuclear programme, the country`s aviation chief says. Those sanctions ban manufacturers from selling new aircraft or parts to Iranian companies, which has grounded much of the fleet. The fleet consists of only 140 functioning aircraft, Ali Reza Jahangirian, head of the Iran Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), was quoted Friday by state news agency IRNA as saying. `That is lower than the average international norms in terms of international indexes of population and area,` he said, adding that an eventual nuclear deal with world powers would ease the way toward solving the problem.

World - Yemen tribesmen take control of southern oil terminal, airport: local officials

Yemeni tribal forces took control of a major southern oil terminal and airport after military forces protecting it withdrew from the site, local officials and residents told Reuters on Thursday. The tribal group known as Al-Majles al-Ahli made up of former Al Qaeda militants and other tribal groups took over the terminal in the city of Al-Shihr in Hadramawt province, according to local officials and residents in the region. The tribal groups also took over a military air base in the area and Al-Rayyan International Airport, local officials told Reuters.

World - Heavy fighting erupts in Yemeni city of Taiz: residents

(Reuters) - Heavy fighting broke out in and around the central Yemeni city of Taiz on Thursday, residents said, pitting an army brigade and tribesmen against the Shi`ite Houthi militia and allied army units. The combat opens up a new front for the Houthis, who have been fighting battles with militiamen across southern Yemen, and signals that control over the army by the Houthis` powerful ally, ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh, may be weakening. ...

World - New Yemen VP calls on armed forces to support government in exile

RIYADH (Reuters) - Yemen`s newly-appointed Vice President Khaled Bahah called on the armed forces on Thursday to support the `legitimate` government in exile and said a ceasefire must precede any peace initiative. Army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh have joined forces with Iranian-allied Houthi rebels against the government and staged advances which forced it to flee. Bahah said no peace initiatives would be considered unless President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government return to the southern city of Aden, where it enjoys the most support. ...

World - Mideast`s arch-survivor stands in way of Saudi success in Yemen

By Noah Browning and Michael Georgy DUBAI (Reuters) - Three weeks of Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen have led to defections of army units loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, military sources said, dealing a blow to his efforts to stage a comeback. Saleh has teamed up with his old foes, the Iranian-allied Houthis, against his former backer Saudi Arabia, displaying the political skill that enabled him to rule the heavily armed and fractious country for more than three decades. Saudi Arabia launched the air attacks last month as Houthi rebels, who had taken control of the capital Sanaa in September, closed in on the port city of Aden and forced Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to flee to Riyadh. Further splits could weaken Saleh and help Saudi Arabia and its allies beat back the Houthis, who are engaged in street battles for control of Aden.
