Rebel court sentences Yemen president to death

A rebel court in Yemen's insurgent-held capital has sentenced President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to death for high treason in absentia, The New Arab reported citing the rebel news agency.

The court found Hadi guilty of "usurping the title of president after the end of his term in office" in February 2014, "instigating attacks by Saudi Arabia" and "undermining the independence and integrity of the Republic of Yemen", the rebel-controlled Saba agency said late Saturday.

Six members of Hadi's government were also sentenced to death for treason, it said.
