Southern Popular Resistance fighters gather on a road during fighting against Houthi fighters in Yemen's southern city of AdenBy Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Yemen urged the international community "to quickly intervene by land forces to save" the country, specifically in the cities of Aden and Taiz, according to a letter sent to the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday. The letter from Yemen's U.N. Ambassador Khaled Alyemany, seen by Reuters, could provide legal cover for such a move. A Saudi Arabia-led coalition launched air strikes against Houthi rebels a day after Yemen notified the 15-member Security Council in a March 24 letter that it had requested military help from Gulf Arab states. The Houthi militia battled its way into Aden's Tawahi district on Wednesday despite Saudi-led air strikes, strengthening its hold on the city whose fate is seen as crucial to determining the country's civil war.

FILE - In this Jan. 22, 2015, file photo, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady speaks at a news conference about the NFL investigation into deflated footballs, in Foxborough, Mass. An NFL investigation has found that New England Patriots employees likely deflated footballs and that quarterback Tom Brady was "at least generally aware" of the rules violations. The 243-page report released Wednesday, May 6, 2015, said league investigators found no evidence that coach Bill Belichick and team management knew of the practice.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, seen in Beit Shemesh on April 13, 2015, and the far-right Jewish Home reached a coalition deal at the 11th-hourIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held on to his job Wednesday, announcing that he had hammered together a new coalition government just ahead of a midnight legal deadline. "I am leaving here to call the president and the speaker of the parliament to inform them that I have been able to build a government," he said in remarks at the Knesset after marathon talks with Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett. "I am honoured to inform you that I have been successful in forming a government, which I will request is brought before the Knesset for its approval as soon as possible," Rivlin's office quoted the note as saying. The news came just over an hour ahead of a legal deadline at midnight (2100 GMT) after which the task of forming a government would have been given to another party leader -- most likely Isaac Herzog, head of the centre-left Zionist Union, which won 24 seats in the March 17 election, behind 30 for Netanyahu's rightwing Likud.
