IN PICTURES: Are these the men who killed Ali Abdullah Saleh?

Published: Updated:

Although it remains unclear how former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh was exactly killed by the Houthis, some Yemeni Twitter users have been circulating photos of men alleging they were the murderers.

The photos were grabbed from the video of Saleh’s murder. Yemeni media outlets said among the killers was Rashid Manaa, the son of Fares Manaa, a Houthi field commander and arms dealer who was once close to Saleh before turning against him.
