A brother of Abdel-Malek Al Houthi, the leader of Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi rebel movement which has been fighting a war against forces backed by a Saudi-led military coalition since 2015, has been killed, the group said on Friday.
Ibrahim Badreddin Al Houthi was found dead in a house in Sanaa and the rebel group has deployed additional forces around the city in response, a security source said.
The Houthis' Interior Ministry put out a statement in which it blamed the killing on "the treacherous hands affiliated with the US-Israeli aggression and its tools", without giving further details.
