Relatives of late former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, arrived in Oman after fleeing from the Houthi movement in Sanaa.

The Saudi-led alliance facilitated their safe travel.

Meanwhile, Houthi militiamen arrested Roqaya Al-Hajri, Saleh's sister-in-law, and her brother Ahmad al-Hajri. Roqaya is known as “the mother of orphans.” Earlier this month, the Houthis in Sanaa stormed Roqaya’s house and looted money allocated for sponsoring and looking after orphans.
