"But the journalists refused to do it", the official said.

From the Saudi capital, Riyadh, where he has been in self-imposed exile for most of the war, Hadi tried on Monday to rally Saleh's allies to keep up the fight against the Houthis.

France's United Nations ambassador says the latest developments in Yemen "create a period of maximal risks" and dangers on the humanitarian and military front — but also a chance for "new opportunities to boost the political process in the country".

The Gulf Cooperation Council on Tuesday strongly condemned the Houthi rebels for killing Saleh.

Bessho said the 15-member council was deeply concerned about the sharp escalation in violence as well as "the dire and deteriorating" humanitarian situation in Yemen.

"People are reporting that there are many arrests and they are trying to shoot military men and (Saleh party) members".

The rebels killed Saleh on Monday, days after he broke off his alliance with them against a Saudi-led coalition.

Dujarric, the U.N. spokesman, told reporters that U.N. special envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed told a closed meeting of the U.N. Security Council that the killing of Saleh and others was "an adverse development" that will "constitute a considerable change to the political dynamics in Yemen".

The commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, praised what he called the Houthis' swift quashing of the "coup against the holy warriors", the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Speaking before a gathering of supporters, al-Houthi says: "We knew that they were deceived. we hadn't hoped for what happened". That helped propel Yemen into the ruinous civil war that has spread hunger and disease among its 28 million people.

The UN Security Council called Tuesday on all sides in war-torn Yemen to "de-escalate" and return to talks as the conflict there took an ominous turn with the killing of ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

ADEN/DUBAI, Dec 6 (Reuters) - A Saudi-led coalition stepped up air strikes on Yemen's Houthis on Wednesday as the Iran-allied armed movement tightened its grip on Sanaa a day after the son of slain former president Ali Abdullah Saleh vowed revenge for his father's death.

Meanwhile, Doctors Without Borders said patients were evacuated from a hospital in the northern province of Hajja, which is under Houthi control, after it came under airstrikes on Sunday.

It was unclear on Wednesday whether the Houthis had already buried Saleh's body.

Saleh on Saturday announced the end of his alliance with the Houthi rebels, with whom he has jointly ruled the capital for three years. They spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisals.

The Houthis and Saleh's forces began fighting each other in Sanaa last week.
