Yemen's former president, a powerful ally of Houthi forces in a four-month-old civil war, said he wanted his exiled successor tried for treason for enlisting Saudi-led attacks against the Iranian-allied militia.In remarks published Monday by the Huffington Post website, Ali Abdullah Saleh said the airstrikes by a Saudi-led coalition supporting his successor, President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi were a mistake because the kingdom, formerly an ally of Yemen, is now regarded by Yemenis as an aggressor.Army units loyal to Saleh have fought alongside the Zaydi Shiite Houthis throughout the conflict, and his stance may prove pivotal in any diplomatic efforts to resolve Yemen's future given his wide support base in the army and bureaucracy.Saleh said he was grateful for Saudi Arabia's support under the late King Abdullah, who died earlier this year.
