A rift in Yemen's rebel camp has opened the door for Saudi Arabia to mediate in a conflict that has claimed thousands of lives, the International Crisis Group said Wednesday.Security forces in the southern city of Aden meanwhile arrested 10 members of an Islamist partner in the internationally recognized government, following a roadside bombing that killed a preacher with ties to the United Arab Emirates. Compounded by poverty, cholera and looming mass starvation, the Yemen war has claimed more than 8,500 lives since Saudi Arabia and its allies joined the government's fight against the Iran-backed Houthi rebel alliance in 2015 . In August, rumored tensions between Saleh and rebel chief Abdel-Malik al-Houthi spilled over into the streets of Sanaa when a colonel with Saleh's forces and two Houthis were killed in a shootout.Friction was also expected in the opposing camp when the Islah party said forces backed by the United Arab Emirates arrested 10 members of a local Muslim Brotherhood affiliate in Aden.
