Yemeni president sacks prime minister, appoints new senior team: Al-Arabiya

RIYADH Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi appointed a new vice-president and prime minister on Sunday night, sacking current prime minister Khaled Bahah, reported Al-Arabiya.

In a major shake-up of senior officials, Hadi named as the new vice president General Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmar, a politically powerful army general who split violently with former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2011 during the Arab Spring protests that eventually ousted Saleh.
