"Probably the worst humanitarian catastrophe right now worldwide" – there is no better description of Yemen today than this emotional statement made by Germany's foreign minister after meeting his French counterpart.Further exacerbating an already complex situation is a clear disregard for human loss.With the rebellion by the Iranian-backed Houthis, who announced their killing of Saleh, expected to be buoyed by this "victory" and the legitimate army of Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi mobilizing, Yemen is destined to be little more than a dhow lost at the high seas of bloodshed, and bloodshed only. Saleh's death promises the same tragic poison.
