An Arab-led coalition stepped up airstrikes on Yemen's Houthis Wednesday as the Iran-allied armed movement tightened its grip on Sanaa a day after the son of slain former President Ali Abdullah Saleh vowed revenge for his father's death.The pro-Houthi Al-Masirah television station said Wednesday Saudi Arabia and its allies had bombed Saleh's residence and other houses of his family members now controlled by the Houthis.Ahmad Ali had been widely expected to leave the UAE, a key member of the Arab-led coalition fighting the Houthis, for Yemen to help in the war amid media reports that some Saleh loyalists have been switching sides.Tuesday, Saleh supporters said his nephew Tarek, another top commander, and the head of his party, Aref Zouka, had both been killed.Political sources said the Houthis had arrested dozens of Saleh's allies and army officers affiliated with his party in and around the city.Much is likely to depend on the future allegiances of Saleh loyalists who previously helped the Houthi group.
