The lifeless body of Yemen's top Salafi sheikh in the southern port city of Aden was found disfigured Sunday hours after he was abducted following an anti-extremism sermon, security officials told the Associated Press.With government forces now pushing north toward the rebel-held capital, Sanaa, the vacuum in Aden has given rise to affiliates of extremist groups like Al-Qaeda and Daesh (ISIS), who have grabbed lands and exercised control in various parts of the city for months.Earlier in the day, Human Rights Watch said the rebels, known as Houthis, have for months restricted food and medical supplies to Yemen's third-largest city, Taiz, in what it described in a statement as "serious violations of international humanitarian law".Saturday, officials said airstrikes by the Arab-led coalition killed over 32 people including at least eight civilians in Sanaa.
