President Trump on Wednesday said he's directed his administration to push Saudi Arabia to completely lift a month-old blockade on war-torn Yemen.

The coalition has imposed a blockade on the country, with the aim of reinstating the internationally recognized government of Saleh's successor, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

About 7 million Yemenis - many of them children - are on the brink of starvation as the Saudi coalition has cut off access to the country.

His family's allies have battled the Houthis since last week, a dramatic turn in a conflict that had been largely stalemated for much of the past three years. Saleh's son Salah said on Facebook on Tuesday that he would not accept condolences for his father's death until "after avenging the blood".
