Yemen's ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh's party named a new leader after he was killed by his one-time allies in the country's civil war, the Iran-aligned Houthi movement, last month.

The General People's Congress party said Sadeq Amin Abou Rass, a former agriculture minister, had succeeded Saleh. The Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthis had received backing from army units loyal to Saleh, which it hoped would help it gain a major edge in the three-year conflict.

Sunday's announcement criticized Saudi "aggression" and said the party would keep resisting, but did not mention the Houthis.
