Yemen's official news agency is reporting that Arab coalition forces are advancing toward the Red Sea port of Hodeidah.More than 8,750 people have been killed in Yemen since the Arab coalition intervened in March 2015, to help the government of Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi fight the Houthis.Forces loyal to the internationally recognized government are hoping to exploit the collapse of the Houthis' alliance with fighters loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was killed by the rebels earlier this month.A source from Saleh's General People's Congress Party, who has asked not to be identified, told AFP the Houthis allowed less than 10 people from Saleh's relatives to attend the night-time burial.Saleh ruled Yemen for 33 years before being forced to step down in 2012 in a Gulf-brokered transition plan that followed months of Arab Spring protests demanding democracy in Yemen.
