The head of the Arab League warned that Saleh's killing following the collapse of his uneasy alliance with the rebels threatens an "explosion in the security situation" in the war-ravaged country.
Ali Abdullah Saleh was killed in a shooting attack on Monday after switching sides, abandoning his Houthi allies in favour of a Saudi-led alliance.
Ali Abdullah Saleh announced on Saturday he was ready to turn a "new page" in ties with the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen if it stopped attacks on Yemeni citizens.
Former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh said on Saturday he was ready for a "new page" in relations with the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen if it stopped attacks on his country.
